The latest Kickstarter update for Transolar Games’ Adventure/RPG hybrid Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption points us in the direction of LockDownCon, a virtual fan convention organized by Neal Hallford who you may know for his work on Betrayal at Krondor and Dungeon Siege.
Hero-U's Lori and Corey Cole will be participating in LockDownCon's "The Golden Age of Computer Gaming" panel, but the event itself will be running through the weekend, packed with guests and presentations. Here’s a bit more on this whole thing:
Neal Hallford - writer on Betrayal at Krondor, Dungeon Siege, Champions of Norrath, and more - is hosting LockDownCon this weekend. It's a "Virtual Fan Convention," free admission, with some amazing guests and speakers. Scroll way down in the linked page to get to the schedule.
We're last-minute replacements for Ray Muzyka of Bioware fame on "The Golden Age of Computer Gaming" panel Saturday at noon PDT. Matt Barton of Matt Chat is hosting, and we'll be on the panel with Trip Hawkins (Electronic Arts), Warren Spector (Ultima Underworld, System Shock, Deus Ex, etc.), and John Cutter and Neal Hallford from Dynamix (Betrayal at Krondor, etc.) It's a star-studded panel and promises to be amazing!
Today (as I write this), Friday, at 7 pm PDT is a panel on "Narrative Design for Computer Games" that might be of interest to many of you. I'm looking forward to the 3 pm Saturday panel on "Restoring Scientific Thought in America." There are also a number of panels on acting and filmmaking, lots of interesting content.
Best of all, you don't have to get in line outside Hall H for four hours before each panel! And, as I mentioned, it's FREE! Come join us online for LockDownCon this weekend.
