Ever wondered what it's like to work as an indie game developer ? On Wednesday, April 26, 2017, NYC ACM SIGGRAPH is hosting a panel discussion with local indie game developers to talk about what it is like to work in the industry. We will have both new and veteran independent developers cover topics on how their past experience & knowledge has helped them in their careers, what making games is like, where they see the future of the industry going and more.

Speakers
Juliette Dupre, Tilting Point Games

Prior to Tilting Point Games, she was a recruiter at Gameloft and has published various articles on the gaming website Gamasutra.

Jess Haskins, Paperback Studios

Bryan Rodriguez & Joe Laurino, Attack Mountain
ATTACK MOUNTAIN is hidden away in the depths of the city of New York, where two brave men, each with over a decade of game industry experience, interrogate bright cubes called 'computers' until they spit out video games for the masses to play.

Jose Tomas Vicuña, BumbleBear Games
Recent NYU graduate whose thesis project was picked up by BumbleBear games and is now working with them to turn it into an arcade game. Prior to enrolling into NYU, he was filmmaker based out of Chile making award winning films and has taken his knowledge of cinematography into game development.
