GDC Europe 2010

by on Aug.18, 2010, under Development

The last 3 days at GDC Europe came to a really good end with me getting some inside info on the demo scene by Dierk ‘kaos’ Ohlerich himself!!! Apparently there is a demo scene party in 2 weeks in Cologne as well, would be interesting if am able to come back here again at the weekend for it!!!

Now am not really going to go into the details about the lectures or talks as the contents can be found quite easily on the web and am far from a journalist, but there were several interesting things to take away from this GDC.

GDC Europe 2010 Day Zero

by on Aug.15, 2010, under Development

Today marks my first day in Cologne for the GDC Europe and then Gamescom. Things seem to be going well so far!

Also I complete 3 years today in the Games Industry.

Booking a place in advance really paid off and the place I will be living at for the next week is really cool!!! After all the talks and the parties it’s nice to know you will be going back to a comfortable place where you can rest properly.

Day Zero: We collected our passes through the early registration today and due to my honesty we returned an extra pass we had gotten by mistake. Was wondering if it would have been better to keep it and give it to some needy soul who wanted to attend GDC but could not, or whether I did the the right thing by pointing out the mistake.

The rain was very annoying to say the least, where I succeeded at planning a bit ahead for registrations and a place to stay, I failed at looking up the weather here at Cologne. Having lived most my life in India where I doubt they ever get the forecasts correct (not that I used to consult them earlier) but the relative accuracy of the German weather department makes me feel like I should look at the weather forecasts every time before going to another city or planning an outing.

July 2010

by on Aug.07, 2010, under Object(s), People, Photography

I had a busy last month with a lot of things going on at the same time… regardless of that I did manage to find some time to take some photographs. For this month though am the most excited about attending GDC Europe (Game Developers Conference) and Gamescom next week!!!

On another note I have started uploading the web versions at twice the earlier resolution for some extra detail at full size. Anyhow, here are some of the photographs from July.
