At #advx22 this year, Dave Gilbert gave an insightful talk on modular design. Over the pandemic, he analysed and deconstructed his previous game design & development process after finding himself in a rut. This helped him to get his groove back, and maybe this talk can help the rest of us too!
Watch it on Twitch here (https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1649152062) and find my key takeaways below:

So, on a rather impulsive whim (and still kinda riding the #AdvX22 happy cloud), I'll be heading to #MCMBirmingham tomorrow! 😆

Come say hi if you spot me, yis?
For #AdvX22 we needed to stream to the Steam event while we were attending the physical event in London. I've written a blog on how to upload to Steam from a cloud server in case anyone runs into a similar issue!
So. About CWs and some social justice hypocrisy. Last weekend I was at #AdvX22, which had many good things (some good talks, a good game expo), but also less good ones. It was trying to be socially just. It led with a talk about designing games for disabled people. But the talk was bad - infantilizing, talking down specifically to autists - and came right after the con staff said that Britain is living with covid and therefore telling someone to put on a mask is harassment.
I had heard many good things about #AdvX22 and I'm glad I finally made my way there. And I can confirm: it was wonderful. Thanks to all the people on the stage and behind the scenes. Enjoyed every second of it. That was the perfect way to get back into conferencing.
I feel so lucky to have been given the chance to actually meet many of the friends I’ve made on my journey! Thank you #AdvX22
Back to Brighton, it was so good to see old faces, meet new people, and play a lot of fresh games. My admiration and thanks to the organisers, exhibitors and volunteers #AdvX22 <3
This, sadly, concludes my stay at #AdvX22. What a wonderful event it has been and how many nice people I met. I wish you a lot of fun with the rest of the day and the party. Hopefully see each other next year. 😘
Had a wonderful time checking out the games, watching the talks, and chatting to people at #AdvX22... it's been a while!
Erster Tag der Konferenz hat alle Erwartungen erfüllt. Tolle Panels, kreative Menschen. Vor lauter Gesprächen allerdings noch nix angespielt. :D Morgen dann. #AdvX22
