You’re invited to the premier game design conference, PRACTICE: Game Design in Detail!
On November 9th-11th join us at the Game Center for a weekend of brilliant talks, intense debates, and playful socializing with some of the world’s top game designers and a group of your game design colleagues and peers.
Since we last updated you on PRACTICE, we have added more world-class speakers, the schedule has been opened up to add time for socializing, and we will host the opening reception and a special event at the Museum of the Moving Image. View the full list of speakers and more information on the conference here. On the site you’ll also find videos of select lectures from last year, as well examples of PRACTICE in the news.
Highlights from this year’s schedule include a lecture by the lead designer of the new Sim City, Stone Librande on the development of the game, a longer ‘Open Problems’ session, a popular event from last year where attendees bring in their own design problems for feedback form the entire room, and in keeping with PRACTICE’s penchant for expanding the notion of game design, David Ward, from the War Gaming Department at the United States Naval War College, will open the event on Sunday. PRACTICE is a gathering of the most diverse and forward thinking game designers in the world and we want you to add your voice!
PRACTICE was created to address the community of working game designers, so this year we’re happy to offer a 10% discount to IGDA members! Simply use the code ‘IGDA’ at the registration page to access the discount.
The heart of PRACTICE is the exchange of ideas among the attendees, and so we invite you to spread the word to friends and colleagues you think would like to be a part of this exchange!
If you have questions or comments about the conference, we’d be happy to hear from you at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to see you there!
