Corey will be speaking about how a thoughtful approach to building a local industry culture can facilitate growth in Winnipeg at tonight’s IGDA Meeting.

Game Development in Winnipeg – The Next Five Years” is from 7:00-9:00 pm in the Main Lecture Theatre at Red River College Princess Street Campus.

This meeting was the first time Corey organized an IGDA event –with the help of Complex Games CEO Noah Decter-Jackson– and it features some of our community’s most important voices.

Check out full details below:

You may not realize it, but our humble game development community is transforming into a vibrant, talent-driven industry. World renowned brands and internationally recognized innovations are taking root in our backyard, and this may only be the beginning.

From a stable of small independent developers to our first — in what we hope are many — full service studio, Winnipeg’s game development community is growing.

How do we keep this momentum going? What challenges lie ahead? Where are we falling behind and what opportunities should garner more attention? Join some of our community’s most influential players as they discuss what the next five years may hold.
