Looking back into the future

August 4th, 2014 No comments

It’s big. It’s EPIC. It’s The EVOLUTION of GAMING Expo!

As a French-Canadian collaboration, the Evolution of Gaming features… well… the evolution of video games!

From its origins –when a “video game” was a hybrid board game with sheets to be placed in front of the screen– to the future of oculus rift!

The gaming ancestor –aka. The Chimera

We came. We saw. We played.

The classics are there, hanging out with the less classics.

The Mona Lisa of gaming is there

& Space Invaders in its arcade form!

 

Consoles –from the years when plastic was still resistant enough to handle game rage– take us back to the 90s, 80s & even 70s!

Yes, the Frogger is there as well!

Relive the STRESS of moving a frog across a busy street.

DIE A LITTLE every time you fall off a platform.

Have a MINI-RUSH as you stack layers of burgers atop moving eggs & cucumbers!

This game is evil

A sausage has never been scarier

The exhibit is at the Centre of Digital Media until August 10!

Most importantly: it’s FREE! Book your place online & relive your childhood!

Evolution of Gaming is nothing without The Plumber

Happy BC day everyone!

See you at the Full Indie Summit!

Full Indie Summit 2014

June 3rd, 2014 No comments

A year ago, Full Indie held the 2013 Summit, filling the Rio Theatre to maximum capacity.  It was a day of talks by indie developers, for indie developers. Many of you have asked if we are holding another one in 2014.  We are: it will be even better, and you can get tickets right now!

 

 

Last year we had awesome talks from people like Nels Anderson, Chevy Ray Johnston and Shane Neville.  Our only regret was that we only had one day to fit everybody in.

 

 

Expanding to the prestigious Stanley Stage, August 9th and 10th, we are bringing you TWO full days jam-packed with amazing speakers from around the world. If you missed GDC, or were looking for an event focused on indies, you’ve found it.

Ticket sales are now open at early bird prices ($25): LINK

Full Indie Game Jam 2013

November 13th, 2013 No comments

The long-awaited Full Indie Game Jam 2013 is here! We are hosting another 48-hour game jam at the Great Northern Way Campus. Feedback from last-year’s jam was so positive that we’re expanding it to 100 people.  The jam will happen over this weekend (Nov 15th-17th).

If you fancy the challenge of making an entire game from scratch (or using existing libraries/engines) in 48-hours, either on your own or with a team, then this could be what you are looking for.

Interested?  Check out our EVENT PAGE.

As all of you (hopefully) know, there is an election coming up in BC.  Well, a bunch of industry folk are getting together to vote early.  You don’t have to be in a downtown riding to vote early here – you can live anywhere.
