Minimum Review
With so many shooters crowding the marketplace, it’s refreshing to see Minimum take the low-fi route through Steam Early Access.

Down Time - Plus How To Get Into GDC For Free

Posted on Friday, January 23 @ 16:27:56 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
GR is moving to new servers tomorrow, Saturday January 23rd. A few hours of down time is expected. That's all. So, now do you want to go to the Game Developers Conference?

Here's some good advice from GR's Greg Damiano:

Hey Readers!

Lots of you like reading about video games, some of you want to actually be involved in making video games. You want to code, to paint, to test games, you saw Grandma's Boy and said "that's me!"

I wanted to give our readers a heads up, because you have one week left to get into gaming's Emerald City without paying out the nose. You do this the same way you get into any other convention free:

You volunteer!

GDC volunteers are organized in a large, fairly cohesive group. Sometimes you will as a team, sometimes you party as a team, plus you get all-access to GDC events during your breaks.

I promise that no organizer or sponsor asked me to plug this gig - I am simply bringing it up because I saw the GDC volunteers hanging out last year and it seemed like a cool little community.

GDC San Francisco is one of the game industry's biggest educational and business events. You can attend classes and speeches given by leading studios and personalities, there's a small demo floor like E3 to try new products, and you can mingle with the legions of recently laid-off chaps at the job fair.

Plus, for a week in San Francisco, every bar and club for a mile plays host to industry parties. If you're under drinking age, you have volunteer buddies (and I suppose volunteer events) to hang out with, and a whole gorgeous city to explore.

So go here and take a shot at the big time: http://www.gdconf.com/volunteers/index.html ...and maybe some day you and me can both laugh about being unemployed at a distant convention job fair!
