No longer from a time or land far, far away, the brave new world of gaming is emerging now – and right here, in Austin. With games that are more casual, more mobile, more accessible, and much cheaper to develop and launch than previous-generation console games, gaming has attracted new interest from entrepreneurs, marketers, and investors across the nation. Does Austin have the right combination of creative genius, technical talent, entrepreneurial know-how, and access to smart capital to be the epicenter of an explosion of new ventures bringing entertainment and connection to the computer, smart-phone, and iPad enabled community? How will these new ventures change gaming, Austin and the world?
These questions and others will be addressed by legendary game innovator, Richard Garriott, now of Portalarium, local entrepreneur Rodney Gibbs, CEO of Ricochet Labs and creator of the internationally popular Qrank trivia game, and other distinguished panelists.
This event will likely sell out, so register today to secure your seat. Game on!
