Hey O&G fans, are you a indie game fan? Do you like to meet and pick the brain of game developers? Would you like to embarrass a friend in smash bros. in front of strangers for bragging rights (LOL)? GameAcon is for you!
Gameacon is the only conference of its kind — one that combines the business-to-business networking and educational opportunities of the GDC with the entertainment and public feedback aspects of Magfest or Pax. And it all focuses exclusively on independent game developers from around the world. Our mission is to promote independent artists in game creation by providing a space for them to showcase their work, the opportunity to reach an audience who craves to see it, and a forum to learn from each other.

Gameaconwas held this past weekend at the Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City. developers got an opportunity to show games that they are working on to potential players.
Speakers present at the event were Jon Jones, Content Curator at Epic Games, Nick Landry from Microsoft, and Andy Hess from Unreal. The panels and roundtable discussions ranged from topics like art direction in games, how to develop prototypes. Fans and future game developers got a chance to ask question and get some insight into the game industry.
