Hvilke typer spil vil blive drøftet? Og et andet spørgsmål om pris. Hvor meget bliver det? Jeg tjener bare penge på sådanne spil i spilcentre og er ikke helt bekendt med andre.

Hej Niklas, der står inde under event siden at det er gratis at deltage, men man skal registrere sig. Jeg ved ikke om der kommer en bestemt type spil, det lyder mere til at det er hvordan man lever som freelance og strukturerer sin hverdag der vil blive talt om. Så hvordan man starter op som freelancer, bliver hyret til opgaver og sørger for at man har det godt igennem det :)

Som Christoffer også skriver, så er det ganske gratis, men kræver at man tilmelder sig inden workshop'en.

Som sådan er der ikke defineret nogen bestemte spiltyper, der vil blive diskuteret, men da arrangementet tager afsæt i den danske spilbranche, vil vi nok snakke en del om mindre spilvirksomheder og produktioner, da disse udgør en ret stor del af branchen i Danmark.

Jeg troede jeg kendte alle dele af byen, men ikke lige den ;-)

I burde overveje at filme alle 'panel talks' til denne workshop og fremover så man kan få glæde af det uanset hvor man er.

Okay, tak, jeg vil gå og derefter registrere min deltagelse. I mellemtiden kan jeg med sikkerhed prøve at lancere mine yndlingsspil her og begynde at prøve at tjene penge.

Enter through the door at Flæsketorvet 38B, go to the back of the corridor, and take the stairs to the 3rd floor.

There will be signs as well
