The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

GDC Celebrating Its 25th Show

Posted on Tuesday, February 22 @ 10:47:11 PST by



Though this isn't technically the 25th anniversary of the Game Developers Conference, its 25th show will be in full force next week from February 29th to March 4th. (Fun fact: The first GDC took place in the living room of GDC founder Chris Crawford in 1988 and was called the Computer Game Developers Conference.)


To celebrate, Chris Crawford will return for a special lecture entitled 'In Days of Yore' - a surprise after his departure from the video game industry after his famous 1992 'dragon speech'.



GDC 25 has also teamed up with production company I Am 8-Bit (or iam8bit) and will be giving out two special posters, randomly out of a set of four, to each attendee. At registration, attendees will also be given one 'pixel', which they can attach to an initially blank canvas (pictured above) to form a collaborate art piece called Paint by Pixels. Makes me want to play Picross, actually.

Finally, GDC 25 will debut the Classic Game Postmortems, featuring the makers of the several seminal video games of all time: Pac-Man, Elite, Out of This World/Another World, Prince of Persia, Marble Madness, Doom, Pitfall, Bejeweled, Populous, Raid on Bungeling Bay, and Maniac Mansion. (I haven't told Blake yet about the Pac-Man one yet... I guess he knows now.)
