Every GDC developers get together to learn from peers who have found success on the well known gaming platforms. But what can be learned from developers that took alternate routes?
In this GDC 2018 set of microtalks, developers Kaho Abe, Robin Baumgarten, Nathalie Lawhead, Tj Hughes, Heather Flowers and Tammy Duplantis share their experiences taking strange and untrodden paths in the world of indie games.
The developers discuss their work on specialized custom hardware, games that are focused on expression of the creator, and experimental games to share their experiences.
It's an insightful talk that's definitely worth watching, so developers shouldn't miss the opportunity to do so now that it's freely available on the official GDC YouTube channel!
In addition to this presentation, the GDC Vault and its accompanying YouTube channel offers numerous other free videos, audio recordings, and slides from many of the recent Game Developers Conference events, and the service offers even more members-only content for GDC Vault subscribers.
Those who purchased All Access passes to recent events like GDC or VRDC already have full access to GDC Vault, and interested parties can apply for the individual subscription via a GDC Vault subscription page. Group subscriptions are also available: game-related schools and development studios who sign up for GDC Vault Studio Subscriptions can receive access for their entire office or company by contacting staff via the GDC Vault group subscription page.
