Savannah College of Art and Design is gearing up to host the fourth annual Game Developers eXchange, a video game development conference for students and educators, with industry professional speakers. The keynote speaker this year will be Eric Zimmerman, co-founder of New York-based Gamelab and long-time indie game developer. His keynote address, titled, “Going Indie: An Independent Game Developer’s Survival Guide,” will look at what it means to be an indie developer in today’s mass-media-versus-fringe world. The two-day conference will also play host to “Entelechy 2008,” SCAD’s annual student exhibition of interactive and game design artwork. Other speakers will include Greg Costikyan, CEO of Manifesto Games, Chris Crawford, author of several books on game development and founder of the Computer Game Developers Conference (now known as the GDC), and Tracy Fullerton, game designer, author and co-director of University of Southern California’s Game Innovation Lab. Conference sessions will be divided into five subject areas: design, production, distribution, and audience and industry. The Game Developers eXchange will take place April 10 and 11 at Savannah College of Art and Design-Atlanta. For more information, visit www.scad.edu/gdx.
