Steam Dev Days 2016: The view from Twitter on day one

Steam Dev Days 2016: The view from Twitter on day one

October 12, 2016 | By Alex Wawro




After taking some time off, Valve's Steam Dev Days game dev meetup is back this year with a newfound focus on VR.

However, there's likely to be other notable news out of the two-day event, which kicked off today in Seattle, Washington. 

Defender's Quest dev and occasional Gamasutra blogger Lars Doucet, for example, gave a talk today alongside Valve's Jeff Bellinghausen about Valve's plans for the Steam Controller and its API, which include better promotion for the controller and expanding the API to support other gamepads -- starting with the PS4

For many Steam game devs, this is an opportunity to get together in Valve's stomping grounds and learn from both Valve representatives and each other. It's also a place where Valve speaks openly (if quietly, given that members of the media are not typically invited to Dev Days) about its plans for the future, and thus it's always fun to skim Twitter and see what Steam Dev Days attendees are saying about their time at the show.

With that in mind, we've gone ahead and collected a smorgasbord of attendee tweets (about everything from a new VR controller prototype to the state of paid mods on Steam) from Steam Dev Days below to give anyone who isn't attending a sense of what's happening at Valve's game dev conclave:

(He did, in fact, speak about this in depth today -- this is what he said.)
