Game Mixer Barcamp
Wednesday, 05.05.2021, 02:00 p.m. - 04:30 p.m. CEST
New game concepts, ideas and projects are often created through the exchange with other people. For this reason, the Game Mixer Barcamp offers you the opportunity to bring ideas, topics and thoughts and discuss them together with other interested people from the games industry. You have an idea or a specific topic that you would like to discuss with other people or you are just interested in the exchange with other international game developers?
In both cases - register now! -> You can specify your participation in the registration process.
Game Mixer Peer Monitoring
Thursday, 06.05.2021, 01:00 p.m. - 03:30 p.m. CEST
You got stuck with your idea, you dived too deep into your own concept or you are looking for some fellows who can help with a specific thing? You don't know if the music is appealing or have troubles with storytelling? Often you need some change of perspective to develop your game further. That's why Game Mixer created the Peer Mentoring Module - to learn from each other and get to know interesting people from the games industry in other countries.
In this session, you are asked to shortly present your game / your prototype and your issue at hand. Afterwards, people can share their thoughts and provide direct feedback. In the next round you'll change roles and give feedback to others.
In order to save time in the live mentoring, Game Mixer will provide short let's play videos on the Game Mixer website, so everybody can prepare for that session in advance by diving into each other's games. In order to show your game to other participants, you are welcome to share a YouTube link to your game presentation (max. five minutes) with Game Mixer in the following registration process.
