International Hobo have two members giving talks at GDC in San Francisco this year: Wendy Despain and Ernest Adams are both speaking at their own sessions, and Wendy is also on a panel.
Fundamentals of Game Design Workshop is Ernest's sold-out session, and aims to provide an intensive, day-long tutorial about the fundamentals of computer game design. During the session attendees will be divided into game design groups and given specific roles to play. At the end of the day team leaders will give a presentation on their group's work and discuss with the rest of the workgroup.
Wendy will be chairing the IGDA Writing SIG roundtable again this year. The session will go over all the accomplishments of the past year and also highlight some other projects the Writing SIG is involved with. Anyone interested in game writing is encouraged to attend.
All of us here at ihobo wish Wendy and Ernest good luck with their respective sessions.
