As part of the first annual Grassroots Game Conference, held from April 23 through April 29, 2012 throughout the city of Philadelphia, a panel discussion on the subject of independent game studio creation was held.
Located in the Elaine C. Levitt Auditorium at the University of the Arts, a group of six Philadelphia-based independent videogame developers gathered to share their experiences. Covering topics ranging from studio origins to development methodology and tools to potential legal issues, this panel is a terrific source of information and insight.
In attendance were six game developers representing three studios: William Stallwood and Dain Saint of Cipher Prime Studios, Mike and Tim Ambrogi of Final Form Games, and Ryan Harbinson and Ryan Morrison of Island Officials. Moderating the panel was Editor-in-Chief of Polygon, Christopher Grant.
This event was held on April 29, 2012.
The Grassroots Game Conference is an endeavor of the Philadelphia Game Lab.
