Can you make a good living as a game designer without compromising your creative vision or moral principles?

In this talk Adam Saltsman will share his experience as a successful indie developer and discuss his approach to the challenge of making personal, passion-driven games within the economic context of a commercial marketplace.

Adam is an Austin-based game designer and the director of the indie game studio Finji. He is the creator of the celebrated, genre-defining “infinite runner” game Canabalt, and the popular game development tool Flixel, and is an energetic collaborator who has contributed to dozens of games including Hundreds and FEZ.
