in Event announcements

The July meeting of Boston Post Mortem will be held on Wednesday the 14th at 7pm at The Skellig in Waltham.  This month we’ll be doing a reprise of the PAX East Panel, “Indies Will Shoot You in the Knees“:

Everyone is talking about Indie games — titles like World of Goo, Braid, and AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! — A Reckless Disregard for Gravity are making press and making money. But they’re fighting against games with $200 million dollar budgets and 100+ person dev teams. How do Indies compete? Three Boston-based Indie developers will check their water-guns at the door and tell you why and how Indie games are kicking more ass, taking more names, and chewing more bubblegum than their AAA rivals. You will hear from the Ichiro Lambe (IGF Finalist Dejobaan Games, Aaaaa!), Scott Macmillan (Macguffin Games, All Heroes Die) and ex-Bungie AI wizard Damián Isla, founder of the new indie Moonshot Games. The panel will be moderated by Eitan Glinert, founder of Fire Hose Games.

Like with the original panel, most of the talk will be devoted to answering questions from the audience.  So come prepared with either the ability to use Twitter, or paper and a pen.

This panel was great, and it was one of the best Boston Post Mortems I’ve ever been in many years. Many thanks to Eitan and the BPM organizers.

I recorded the panel using my iPhone 3GS so the quality is poor but I think it pretty much all came through. I’ve posted the videos on YouTube:
