After the seminars I did not have much time to walk around, but I had a chance to talk with artists Stephen Silver, Joshua Ellingson, Bobby Chiu, Mike Mignola, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, and Joshua Middleton. It was nice to meet them, and hopefully next year will be just as interesting.
GDC, also in San Francisco, was a very different experience for me in comparison to the previous year, because I was working it. I got to listen to Shigeru Miyamoto (Mario, Donkey Kong, and The Legend of Zelda) speak about the Wii and how he goes about developing his games.
Here is a link if anyone is interested in the presentation:
I also attended a session about The Legend of Zelda series, with Eiji Aonuma. Which I was not too happy with, because of how banal the speech was. I wish he would have provided a little more in-depth information about the series, and not just something we could have read in the latest issue of Game Informer. Oh well…Until next year.
