Attn. all indies: GDC organizers Think Services have just officially announced that this year’s GDC Austin will be including, for the first time, a two-day Independent Gaming Summit similar to the one that’s been gaining big traction at GDC’s conventional convention earlier in the year.
The call for submissions has just opened via GDC Austin’s IGS site, noting that the summit hopes to bring together and “highlight the brightest and the best of indie development, with discussions surrounding business models and methods, promotion and marketing, deep game design techniques and inspirational case studies.”
On a more personal note, I’ve joined IGF Chairman and Gamasutra director Simon Carless, Flashbang’s Matthew Wegner and Steve Swink, and fellow Austinite Adam Saltsman (coincidentally the creator of the just-released Fathom) as one of the Austin IGS’s advisors, and we’ll be banding together over the coming months to make sure there’s many excellent things happening both on-site and off- that week.
The Austin IGS will be held September 15th and 16th, 2009, with the main GDC Austin running through the 18th. More information on the GDC Austin proper can be found here.
