Updated: GMX is now a free event thanks to sponsorships!
CGD member Jeremy Handel is putting on a unique event called GMX (http://gmexpo.com/what) that includes a screening of the documentary "The Story Of Mojang (http://youtu.be/SXEdspVDMxw)". There are more announcements coming soon but if you are interested in participating you can reach Jeremy at [masked] .
UPDATED: Game designer Ian Schreiber, author of the book Challenges for Game Designers (http://www.amazon.com/Challenges-Game-Designers-Brenda-Brathwaite/dp/158450580X), was just announced as GMX's keynote speaker. Ian will be discussing rapid prototyping concepts as well as holding a hands-on workshop for attendees. This is a really amazing opportunity to meet and learn from a highly respected influence within the gaming industry.
And here is more about the event:
Games are made in California right? Or maybe in Europe or Australia? Guess again! Games are made everywhere, even right here in Ohio. If that surprises you, maybe you should stop by the inaugural GAME.minder Expo (http://gmexpo.com/) and take a look at what's been happening right in your backyard!
Starting right around lunch time, and ending late in the evening, think of GMX (http://gmexpo.com/) as one part Penny Arcade Expo (http://paxsite.com/) mixed with one part Game Developers Conference (http://www.gdconf.com/), thrown in a pot with a splash of IndieCade (http://www.indiecade.com/) and some midwestern charm.
Some things you can expect:
Demos of games
Developers showing off their works in progress
Panel discussions on game development
Presentations on art, tech and even the law
A great movie!
