Quo Vadis - [Where are you going](latin)



Like every year, Berlin is going to be hosting the Quo Vadis Entwikerlerkonferenz. Essentially it is a huge 2 day Conference, in which countless people from the game industry give talks and lectures, host workshops, present themselves and exchange contact information. This year, over 130 talks will be held by leading international and German game designers, artists, level designers, programmers, 3d modelers… the list goes on. The Conference is held over two days, and during the first night there is usually a ‘get to know one another’ party on the roof of the Games Academy, one of the private schools teaching computer game design.


All in all, it’s a really chilled environment and you can basically go up to all the game design legends and just have a chat with them and get to know what the industry is like.

Ill probably be getting a ticket for free from my university, in return I have to represent the school and show some of the work we do there. And now comes the only downside… The tickets are really expensive, around 90Euros I think. But can you really put a price on knowledge? .. and the party has free beer^^ So the way I see it, if you drink more than 90Euros worth of beer at the party you get back at the man.

  8. As a game designer I would attend the Game Developers Conference in San Fransisco and Austin Texas, also held in Canada and China. It's good to see other smaller conferences being held throughout many more countries.
