Nicolas Guérin, Spiritfarer’s Creative Director, is presenting at the Game Developers Conference this year!
His talk, entitled ” ‘Spiritfarer’s’ Journey: Crafting Tenderness “, will showcase his reflection on the design approached we used, and will present the challenges of crafting game mechanics around a wholesome message.
If you’re interested in learning more about our game making processes, the talk will be available for GDC pass holders during the event, July 19-23, 2021.
If you don’t know, GDQ is a semi-annual charity marathon where gamers complete games as fast as possible while gathering funds for Doctors Without Borders. The event is scheduled for July 4th-11th 2021.
