I had a blast this year. It’s really fun to be busy – your brain just goes on autopilot after a while and you feel super productive no matter how superficial the meetings are. That said, by the time Thursday rolled around I was quite relieved to fly back – my condolences go out to the people who had to stay the entire week.
Another year, another game developer conference. This was the first time I attended Devcom, and I have to say it’s a pretty good replacement for the now defunct GDC EU. There’s a decent selection of speakers, and the attendees come from all sectors of the games industry which gives the event a slightly less corporate feeling. The on-site catering service is still pretty lackluster though, and I sorely miss Respawn.
