I just got back from GDC in San Francisco. While I didn’t end up getting to a ton of sessions, being able to reconnect with friends and contacts was exceptionally useful. I got the chance to pitch Traveler’s Quest to Sony for their mobile platform Vita. The response I got was positive, so I’m going to try and push that forward and see what happens. No commitment on that one from either side, but it would be a lot of fun to create.
I was amazed to run into so many people that I knew at GDC both students and people I’ve worked with. It was weird to see how many people had actually left larger companies and are working on their own projects with smaller teams. It’s pretty neat to see.
