The January Post Mortem: Your Chance to Rant

For our January Post Mortem, we’re doing something a little different. Based on the concept of 20:20 and Pecha Kucha, the gist is that anyone can speak on any game-related topic, provided their talk conforms to the constraint of 20 slides, 20 seconds each. That’s 6 minutes, 40 seconds of talk.

**How to Submit a Talk**

The January Post Mortem will be held on Wednesday, Jan 16. If you want to participate, you need to submit a PowerPoint presentation and a brief (1 or 2 sentence) abstract to by Wednesday, January 9. The presentation must consist of 20 slides. The slides can be anything from text to abstract images to photos (basically anything but embedded video as that usually fails and we won’t have time to do live tech support). If you’re wondering whether your topic would be a good one, ask me. It probably will be fine.

The presentation must be exactly 20 slides, no more, no less. You can’t spend 6:40 on one slide, or 3:20 on two slides, or whatever. It’s a game, people. You have to stick to the given constraints. That’s part of the fun.

We’ll have time to show about 8 talks. If we receive more than 8 submissions, the Post Mortem committee will review all the submissions and select our favorites of the bunch.

**How the Talks Will Work**

Each of the presentations will be loaded on a laptop and ready to go. A moderator will briefly introduce the speaker and then the talk begins. Each presentation will have been configured to have each slide advance after 20 seconds, so it’s up to the speaker to keep pace with her slides. At the end of the last slide, the talk’s over and we load up the next presentation and introduce the next speaker.

If you have any questions, please send me an email!
