DEC Presents: Transforming a Gaming Community into an Industry

Join us at the DEC on Thursday, May 15 from 10:30am - 11:30am. Look for signage for room location.


American video game development is heavily a west coast phenomena, with California representing the hub of game development in the US. Despite the advanced push of technology and innovation, Ohio has yet to move strongly into the entertainment and gaming space. But Ohio does have one of the largest, and most passionate fan communities in the country and this has started the push towards bringing game development to the State. Chris will speak about the excitement of creating a new industry in Ohio, while tackling the challenges of being one of the few companies in the state.

Presenter: Chris Volpe

He is also a co-founder of the Ohio Game Developer Association and the Ohio Game Developer Expo.
