Education is important, games are too
Learn by playing is part of Corinth philosophy. That’s why we’re glad we could take part in Game Developers Session, Europe's oldest indie game developers conference. It took place at the end of November in Prague.
To deliver you the experience, we asked Iveta, who’s responsible for content development in Corinth, to share her insights about the conference.
Iveta, why did Corinth decide to take part in the conference?
"Given that our apps are related to games, we wanted to see what’s new in the gaming industry. But we also wanted to meet our friends and former colleagues, do some networking and reach out to potential new colleagues."
Did people like the models even though they’re not just about gaming?
"Our interactive 3D models were a huge success, mostly thanks to the unique zSpace technology that we used to present it. After a brief explanation of how to control the zSpace device, most of the participants were able to operate it intuitively. And even suggest us further use of this technology (in graphics, designing and modeling, as well as in education)."
Which model did people like the most?
"The most popular model was the eagle in a “naked”, no feathers version. It reminds people of a grilled chicken :)"
Was Game Developers Session just about “gaming”?
"Not really. There were new and upcoming games to see and try but you could also take part in graphic or programming competitions and meet representatives of local and foreign companies (including major suppliers of game engines, such as Epic Games). And you could even attend a lecture or workshop. There were game themed ones but also one about how the brain works when playing."
How about the atmosphere?
"At the opening party for partners and speakers they told us, that this year was the biggest when it comes to the number of participants. Still, all the 650 people spread out across all three halls where the Session was held and the atmosphere was warm and nice the whole time."
Thank´s, Iveta, for sharing such a first-handed impressions with us and see you in the next blog spot!
