IGDA Drink Up with Chris Avellone & Kate Edwards


The IGDA Drink up is one of our favorite bi-monthly events!

For the upcoming gathering of minds and drinks, we’ll be joined by comic book writer, game and narrative designer Chris Avellone as well as the fabulous executive director of the International Game Developers Association Kate Edwards.

Chris is in town for the Writing for Games: The Game™ workshop while Kate is here to give a talk for Subotron on Game Culturalisation & the Art Of Building Inclusive Worlds.

Even if you’re not thirsty, this is the perfect occasion to meet with these talented and highly experienced members of the game dev community.
We’re looking forward to seeing you @Vrei on the 13th of May 2017 around 19:00, for some brain picking and beverage drinking!

IGDA Austria Drinkup @Vrei

IGDA Drinkup 15.12.

IGDA Austria has finally launched!

Just like everything else, we’re putting a fresh coat of paint to bring you contemporary and frequently updated information on the latest events and things you need to know.

We want to make our next drink up special for all of you! We’re pleased to have partnered up with METALCAT, making it possible to give all of you a free drink during our gathering.
Also, who doesn’t like good ol’ games, we’re going to try something new by bringing you a game corner. We’ll be surprising you with a vintage console and game to go with it. If you want to feel reminiscent and possibly challenge other people, you’ll definitely love this.

And of course, the Global Game Jam is creeping up on us quickly. We’re happy to have one of our favorite developers Des Gayle, producer at Square Enix Collective, as our keynote speaker during the event. The sign up webpage as well as more information regarding the venue will be available soon!
