Triangle Game Conference

By Published April 27, 2009 at 7:59 am

Gaming conferences are kicking off around the country with the start of the new year, and North Carolina's "The Triangle" (Wake County area) is not one to lag behind.  The Triangle Game Conference (TGC) is an event hosted for aspiring game developers - both programmers and designers - and, well, for gamers!  Boasting over 30 gaming dev and gaming media companies, this game con is no joke.  Epic Games, famous for Unreal Tournament & Gears of War, Insomniac Games, Crytek, wildly famous for Crysis, Atomic Games, known for the controversy over their next title, Six Days in Fallujah, and more will all be at the conference.  A couple of "Game Development Universities" will also be on hand for those of us interested in the gaming industry. 




From April 29th to April 30th, Wednesday and Thursday this week, the conference will be open to all who pay the painful-but-worthy entrance fee, and is a great opportunity for all gamers, games reviewers, and game design & programming hopefuls.  Don't miss out on your opportunity to talk to Michael Capps from Epic Games or Martin Mittring from Crytek!  For those of you that can't make it, we'll be there.  A full review of the gaming con, including tips and tricks we paid to hear from these game devs, will be posted online in a two-part series (one post on Wednesday, one post on Thursday or Friday) on The Gamers Nexus for your reading pleasure... you free-loaders! 

If you'd like to see the schedule, it's over there <---.  Programming tips, Design tips, game entrepreneur hazards and bonuses, and a gaming session.  It'll all be there, the only question is: will you?  If the answer isn't yes, be sure to check back for what we learned here at TGN on behalf of our readers.

If you have any specific questions you would like us to ask game devs, anything you want to find out that is reasonable to ask, send us an email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will ask the 'reasonable' ones for you!

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
