For those bashing EA..... Any old-schooler will tell ya, EA is not some great company. Yeah, they've released some great games, but the bottom line is they're the fabled 'corporate giant' out to make money and eliminate competitors. Been that way since the early 80's. Another victim of EA you might have heard of, the Wing Commander series (Privateer as well). If they can't rush out better games than you, they'll buy you out and kill your franchise.

Austin Game Conference Returns
6 April, 2016

Austin Game Conference is returning September 21-22 with founder and CEO Chris Sherman back at the helm and EA as its main sponsor. AGC started in Austin in 2003, but then was purchased by UBM Tech, which gave it another name – Game Developer Conference, later to become GDC Online during its Austin run.

They abandoned the name. We’re bringing it back. It’s the same people involved as 10 years ago. We got the band back together.

The September Austin Game Conference will be held at Austin Convention Center and will be co-chaired by  Gordon Walton, president of Art & Craft Entertainment, Inc., and Rich Vogel, executive producer and president at BattleCry Studios. The conference’s advisory board will be represented by the members of Twitch, Blizzard Entertainment, EA and Portalarium.

There is a hope to attract 800-1,000 attendees in its first year.

That’s what everybody was telling me, not only locally, but on a national level. There’s a hole that needs to be filled. There’s thousands of people employed in the industry (in Austin) and lots of business to be done, but no real catalyst or focal point or lightning rod that brings it all together on a really large scale.

Registration is open here and starts at $249 until July 29, discounts are available for students and groups. Exhibitors booths’ price is set at $1,700.

List of speakers is yet to be discovered.
