Due to popular demand by you, Dave Gilbert, CEO of Wadjet Eye Games, will speak about running an indie game studio on a shoestring.
Dave Gilbert has been interested in adventure games ever since 1986, when his mother made the mistake of buying him a copy of Infocom’s Wishbringer. Fifteen years later, he took his first dip into game creation in when he discovered the Reality on the Norm Project and wrote his first short game. Since then, he has authored over six successful freeware games, including 2004′s award-winning Two of a Kind.
In 2006 he turned his hobby into a fulltime career when he founded Wadjet Eye Games and published his first commercial title, The Shivah. The company was soon nominated for a “Best New Studio” Game Developers Choice award and was also voted by Gamasutra as one of the top twenty breakthrough developers of 2008. Currently on its roster are three games in the Blackwell series as well as the upcoming Puzzle Bots.
