Oh hi there! Yep, it only took a mere three or so months to get this sucker updated again. I’m currently busy once again preparing for the usual trip to Cologne. And once again I’ll attend the Respawn conference after a talk proposal of mine got accepted. (Same for fellow colleagues who’ll head off to GDC Europe.)
This time I’ll blab a bit about information pathologies and how office politics may obstruct the growth of knowledge, tapping into one of my favourite fields from way back: organizational psychology.
Obviously enough, I’ll also check out gamescom; looking forward to meeting some old chaps and former colleagues and getting my hands on some promising indie projects. Speaking of which: The Indie Arena knocked it out of the park this year with a 500m² (five hundred square-bloody-meters!) booth. That’s right. The Indie Arena Booth is going to be a magnificient juggernaut at gamescom 2015.
It’ll also be one of the places where the first Indie Arena Booklet will be distributed? What’s that? A comprehensive compendium of many interesting indie teams/devs from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. His Julesness was actually involved and created the Welcome part, the piece about the Indie Arena Booth, the Fin, contributed to the text on the Indie Arena itself and did general editing work. I’ve also provided a bunch of the photos. A big tip to the hat for Jana, Marius, Martin, Andreas and all the other people who helped make this possible!
If you can’t make it to Cologne, don’t fret: Here’s an online version for your viewing pleasure.
