A few weeks ago, I went to a little convention called Dragon*Con in Atlanta. I won’t go into details about the convention, as that information is covered everywhere, but I would like to talk to you about a panel I attended entitled “Getting Into the Gaming Business.” It was held by — most notably — Mike Capps, President of Epic Games (Gears of War anyone?), Eloy LaSanta (CEO of Third Eye Games), and Jason Bulmahn (lead designer at Paizo).
I am going to break it down into five parts: this introductory post, a post for programmers, a post for artists, a post for writers, and a post for table-top games.
Although they went into a lot of detail about every part, they gave four rules that apply to everybody, so read on to find them out!
