Divekick Developer Panel & Tournament on 9/20 in Chicago

#1 Posted by mccarron (75 posts) -

Hello Midwest Duders,

As part of IGDA Chicago I decided we'd host a Divekick Developer Q+A Panel and Tournament.

Here are some quick details.

Where: 1871 on the 12th floor of the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, IL

When: Friday, September 20th, 2013 starting at 6:30

Who: YOU!

How much: FREE!

Platform: PS3

How: Sign Up on EventBrite

The event will start with a post mortem Q&A panel featuring the game's developers discussing the ins and outs of the development process. You'll be able to get some insights into the development of the idea and what it took to get the game published, as well as ask questions of the developers.

Following that, there will be a Divekick tournament. So start brushing up on your Diving and Kicking skills now so you can go home the Chicago Divekick Champion! It'll be first come first served, so don't forget to get there early to check in.

The top 5 winners will be able to take home their own unofficial Divekickers Hat. If you didn't win one in @fluxwavez's tournament, now is your chance! You too can look like Dave Lang if you place well!

We also have 3 Divekick posters as well for prizes.

For additional details and to sign up, check out the EventBrite event page.

Also feel free to ask me any questions here.
