Boston Indies: What's in the Box? Jackbox Production with Rich Gallup!


In June, Boston Indies is excited to present:

What's in the Box? Join Jackbox Game's Director of Production Rich Gallup for a peek at the production process for the Jackbox Party Pack and how it has evolved as it approaches its 10th iteration later this year!

About the Speaker:
Rich Gallup has been in video games for 20 years, starting as a QA tester at THQ and a producer/host for GameSpot during the infancy of streaming media. Upon returning to his native New England in 2008, Rich served as Lead Producer for the infamous 38 Studios, then as Executive Producer for Disruptor Beam and later OtherSide Entertainment. In the fall of 2022, Rich joined Jackbox Games as their Director of Production. He believes the key to making great games depends on an open, friendly, and fun team supported by flexible processes that allow for exploration, clarity, iteration, and a healthy work/life balance.

We have the space from 7 to 10, so prior to and following the talk, please feel free to hang out and meet other local game makers, and chat about what you're working on!

This season of Boston Indies is sponsored by Skymap Games, who are graciously helping us cover some venue costs! Thanks Skymap!
