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

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.

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.
Whether you’ve been an indie for life or are still learning the ropes, join us on April 20th for the Full Indie Summit!
Full Indie presents a day of lectures by leading independent game developers that will teach and inspire. The speakers are behind some of the biggest indie hits in recent years and have spoken at GDC, the Independent Games Summit, and PAX Dev just to name a few. Each talk will also feature a Q & A period for you to ask the experts your own specific questions.
Attendees and speakers from all over are welcome and encouraged to attend, but we expect the 400 seat venue to sell out so be sure to buy your ticket in advance. It’s a not for profit event and the tickets are simply cover the venue, so if you’ve been unable to afford conferences such as GDC, now’s your chance to experience what you’ve been missing.
The summit will take place at the Rio Theater on Broadway and Commercial, easily accessible by transit. The talks will start at 11AM up to 4PM, with a break for lunch. Each talk will be 25 or 50 minutes long. We will post the full schedule in the coming weeks.
What: 5 hours of lectures by and for independent game developers
When: April 20th, 2013 from 11AM to 4PM
Where: Rio Theater @ Commercial and Broadway
RSVP and secure your ticket right now!
