The Game

GDC is a pure expression of interactivity. There’s no right way to traverse the path from start to finish. From the moment you hit the ground in San Francisco you are faced with a (myriad of options splayed-out before you, do you: BART? Car-share? Cab? Walk (don’t try it!)? But you’ve already been making decisions about how to navigate your time on-the-ground for months: lining up travel & accommodations, printing contact cards, breaking in new shoes, getting plenty of sleep, all in preparation for an intensive week of maximizing time with the largest gathering of game developers in the CONUS. Or maybe you haven’t, and you’re just going to take it as it comes, find the good conversations and pinball-around the conference based on your moment-to-moment experience. It’s all up to you!

After 12 years of GDC interactivity, my days end up anchored around a pleasurable routine that attempts to leave room for the dynamic possibilities that emerge day-to-day:

  • 10 PRINT WAKE UP
  • 7-9am Game Audio Podcast GDC Morning Meetup community check-in
  • Grab a breakfast burrito on the way to Moscone for some audio hallway time.
  • First session of the day: settling-in for epiphanies, deep thinking, and brain-work.
  • Grab-and-go lunch on-the-run to the audio meetup behind the carousel around noon
  • CarouselCon providing solid perspectives from crowd-sourced micro-talks
  • Afternoon dynamics: presentations? Expo Floor? Coffee? Meetings?
  • Is there time for dinner Y/N?
  • Where’s the parties?
  • Is it morning yet?
  • GOTO 10

No matter what pattern your interactive GDC falls into, the conference is usually best experienced with people. To me, there’s nothing better than making a new friend and randomizing your day with a shared passion. Whether new or old, friends provide additional context and perspective on everything from: where to eat to what is the future of game audio. Don’t be afraid to take the adventure off-script, tamp-down the FOMO and get the most out of the day on your own terms, interactively, in the best way possible. With or without people, make sure there is time in your day to recharge your batteries (literally and figuratively) and take care of yourself. Each day is a sprint and the week of GDC can feel like a marathon. Pace yourself.

We choose this opportunity as ambassadors of audio in the game development community, so lead with the greatest optimism, collaboration, humbleness, and grace in-conversation

Have a look at the GDC Code of Conduct before you hit town and engage its guidelines while onsite (and continue to adhere to its sensible advice even outside of the presentation hall). Forming relationships and cultivating conversations should begin with mutual respect; always stay positive and within the bounds of social etiquette. Find ways to include people in your adventures when possible. Find ways to bring other people into your conversations, and always treat people in the best way possible. We choose this opportunity as ambassadors of audio in the game development community, so lead with the greatest optimism, collaboration, humbleness, and grace in-conversation.

Keep your social media trained at #GameAudioGDC on twitter for up to the moment information and don’t forget to share insight and epiphanies there and with the #GameAudio community at-large. One of the greatest feelings is being able to extend knowledge learned on-the-ground to folks who are unable to make it to the conference to experience it first-hand. Twitter doesn’t always make sense in this strange world of social media, but I have seen it work wonders on-the-ground towards pulling together people towards the goal of socializing and keeping in-touch during the week.

News of the World

Monday March 18th

Game Audio Podcast GDC Morning Meetup
After years at the venerable Sightglass coffee, this years conversations will be held on the ground floor of the Sennheiser SF retail location near Union Square. What started as a small group of folks with a shared-love for good coffee and game audio has evolved into a community-catalyzing force that helps set the tone for each days activity during the conference. From 7:00-9:00AM Monday through Saturday folks gather and unravel their experience as part of a group discussion that hovers around game audio and touches on topics in-between our professional aspirations and personal stories. Moving locations to Sennheiser SF is an attempt to increase accessibility and lower the noise floor for the event. I hope you can join us and be part of the conversation.

A Day at the Races

Wednesday March 20th

Wednesday is all about the community conversations and roundtables for me. There are some great presentations that you won’t want to miss, for sure, but one of the things that has risen to the top of my GDC experience are the various audio community discussions that run throughout the week. There is never a shortage of content from experienced folks across all disciplines of game development, but for me, it’s difficult to go wrong sitting-in on a roundtable of interest and the ability to engage in the interactive quality of these forums. Aside from the roundtables listed here for Wednesday, there are other roundtables sprinkled throughout the week. So if you find yourself wanting to be a part of the conversation, or are just looking for something a bit more interactive, I encourage you to seek one out and see what they’re all about.

A Night at the Opera

Thursday March 21st

Thursday is a powerhouse of sound design juxtapositions. From the bonkers action and verve of Yoku’s Island Express through-to the cultural influences of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the day is jam-packed with different ways of expressing and hearing sound. I sat down for a preview of the ‘Moss’: Design Before Sound presentation on-the-ground up here in Seattle from Stephen Hodde; he has put together a succinct illustration of the role that sound plays in delivering on, and how it can better deliver on, the emotional potential in a games design. Part storytelling, part TED talk, and 100% heart. Not to be missed!

My last suggestions for you in this Bohemian Guide to Game Audio GDC are to: make friends, make memories, and envision the role you will play in the future of game audio.
