After having a successful first conference in 2015, the Gameacon Indie Developer Conference is back!
Gameacon 2016 will be held at the Tropicana Casino & Resort in Atlantic City, New Jeresy, from October 27th through 30th.
If you have never heard of Gameacon, it stands for Game Arts Conference and is an event specifically about and for independent game developers and fans of all ages. Their mission is to create a festival to help artists in game creation thrive by providing a space for them to showcase their work, the opportunity to reach an audience who craves to see their games, and a forum to learn from each other.
“Our goal for the second year of Gameacon is to kick up the volume on all aspects of the festival: high value educational opportunities; a great representation of Game Industry Press; more network events; more developers; more fans; more entertainment and more awards.”
– Ben Fox, Gameacon Producer.
