Hi #gamedev, it’s been 10 years since we use PBR in game production, yet I still have this lingering question, a question I was unable to answer after reading so many guides and so many #GDC/#SIGGRAPH talks:
- If you use PBR, but doesn’t aim at 100% hyper-realism (“maybe 85% real”), when your art director tells you, this physically correct material look too dark/bright, do you convince them to adjust exposure curve, or do you change the texture albedo to satisfy the stylization need?
RT @AlSurOrgs: Te invitamos a leer más sobre nuestra contribución al #GDC en nuestro último blog post. Tu apoyo puede hacer la diferencia para construir un futuro digital más equitativo en la región.
This is a great talk about tutorials, and how to make games intuitive so you won't need them:

Check out this GDC talk from last year on solo development. I really liked the first presenter's thoughts on getting started with a project as a solo dev. I hope someone else finds this as inspiring as I did.
Very nice talk on #gamedesign #gamedev for #marvelsnap #gdc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjhsY2Zuo-c
RT @ITforChange: What of the digital revolution? The platform economy deceives us with false choice and exploits our labor. States use digital tech for increased surveillance. We need an infrastructure to reclaim our digital resources & further our individual and collective freedoms. #GDC

War. War never changes.
'Fallout' programmer, producer, and designer Timothy Cain is heading to #GDCShowcase this June to revisit his 2012 Classic Game Postmortem. Read our interview here about what he's excited to share at the online event.
And come celebrate 25+ years of Fallout with #GDC.

Our "Realistic Real-Time Sky Dome Rendering in 'Gran Turismo 7'" presentation with Kenichiro Yasutomi is on GDC Vault! The recording is viewable for subscribers only, but the slide materials (with notes) are accessible to all 🙂
This talk covers physics-based sky rendering, using observation-based atmospheric models, Mie scattering, and LUTs for efficient runtime. It also discusses cloud rendering!
Last month, I attended #GDC for the very first time. But what is GDC? And why is it something that many developers - myself included - wish to attend?
My latest video on AI and Games Plus discusses all of this and more as I relay my own experiences.
My #GDC talk is up on the vault!
Together with Ian Horswill we did a session titled:
"Logic Programming in Commercial Games: Experiences and Lessons Learned"
The video is paywalled for the time being, but the slides are up:
Today has been a wonderful day
GDC has made available two great panels:
1) Jenn Sandercock's GDC talk on Return to Monkey Island production. This is one I was so hoping it would be available to watch - and I'm so happy that it is now ❤️
2) Occupational Burnout in Games: Causes, Impact, and Solutions - with Raffael Boccamazzo, Alicia Fortier, Osama Dorias, Anna Brandberg
I already watched them, loved them ❤️
'How does Zynga hunt for whales?'
🤑 At GDC Zynga talked about its predatory, but profitable, use of in-app purchases.
▪️ 70% - 90% of all revenue comes from "VIPs".
▪️ A poker player who routinely plays 50 hands / day but then starts playing only 20 hands / day will get a call from Zynga to "get them back on track".

I will be sharing my GDC talk on sky rendering soon!
This is the kind of thing that @swardley thinks could create AGI by accident
‼️ 🚨 GDC 2023 TRAILER 🚨 ‼️

Godot game engine on GDC 2023. Juan Linietsky presents his vision for an open gaming ecosystem built on Godot, just like Linux has become the foundation for an open enterprise ecosystem.
#Godot #GodotEngine #GDC #GameDev #Gaming #GameIndustry #GameDevelopersConference
As I’ve said, attending #E3 will be a Games Industry merit badge I will never attain & display in the background of my video chats. I hope kiddo me is still proud that I have rocked multiple years attending #GDC instead.
Someday soon, hopefully, I’ll add games industry experience to my resume.
.. and catch up with colleagues, clients, and friends! (2/2) #gdc2023 #gdc #gamedev #game @atmanrising
Had a blast with @atmanrising at #GDC 2023! It was great to see my #gamedev book in the GDC Bookstore, have some productive meetings ... (1/2)
"The organisers of GDC have told GamesIndustry.biz they are hoping to set up a hotline for attendees who face abuse and harassment at future events.
Earlier this week, the organisers said they "severely condemn" such behaviour following a wave of allegations ranging from spiked drinks to assault during networking events and in attendees' hotels during GDC week."
Want to read one person's perspective on #GDC
I'm actually mentioned in this article which is really neat.
Anyone out there who was in the #GDC speaker deck for 2022, but didn't get one? (so you would have been a top speaker in 2021, I believe)
I ended up with one of those accidentally, but I don't really need it? It should probably go to a home that will appreciate it.
Making games is cool!
Making games can be fun!
But making games is hard.
And never worth losing yourself for.
It is not worth losing sleep, having pain, getting anxiety over.
And if it does, try to fight against it. Because even now, after all of the public information that is supposed to dissuade people about crunch and bad management, this is still part of the industry's culture.
I hope that one day, we get rid of that, but I will not wait for it to happen magically, and will never stop worrying out loud, even in the tiny position that I am.
And I hope that you do the same.
What a #GDC!
Epic turned Fortnite into a game development playground, announced a cross-engine asset store, and casually launched their own ground-breaking programming language!
Godot celebrated the launch of a major new version and, for the first time, had its own expo booth, showcasing some great indie titles being developed with the fully free & open source engine!
Unity is also a piece of software that exists!
I sang a song onstage with #Crashfaster tonight at @dnalounge. It was a packed crowd filled with #GDC attendees and it was a lot of fun. It was a great show and so awesome to see the all the other #chiptine adjacent bands and fans.
I'm so excited about tonight's show at @dnalounge. Since the event is #GDC themed, I'll be wearing my "Shorter Games/Worse Graphics" t-shirt on stage.
Sure, I'll probably be wearing some black hoodie on top, but now you and I both can both secretly know what my t-shirt says.
From Substance Days at #GDC earlier this week, it's great to see the first announcements about the shading model collaboration between #Adobe, #Autodesk, and the #MaterialX governance group.

Day 4 of #GDC! I've loved every talk I had the privilege to attend. I am honored to have been voted as one of the highest rated speakers of GDC 22 & featured in the speaker deck among so many amazing game devs. Also #ThisIsWhatAGameDevLooksLike. Hire me to work on your games! 🙂 #gdc23 #accessibility
If you like my shirt make sure to get it from the creator & support a disabled POC instead of one of the companies that have stolen the design. Here's Annie Segarra's store: https://www.bonfire.com/thefutureisaccessible/
Looking for something to do Thursday? Get ready for an epic night of performance at Noisebridge!

was going through my pile of 3.5" floppies, and found an unmarked disk, so of course i had to find out what was on it
here's a peek inside of the world of a teenaged win95 user in 1998 😅
edit: holy shit, that's *the* seumas mcnally (a #GDC prize named after him) in the dx-ball credits!
@SwiftOnSecurity this is just #gdc
In #SanFrancisco for #GDC this week? Check out the 11th annual POW show at @dnalounge for a night of #chiptunes, #IndieGames, #nerdcore hip hop, and more.
This year's lineup includes #MegaRan, #BitShifter, #DanimalCannon, #Crashfaster, and more.
I'll even be joining Crashfaster for a song on stage. It'll be my first time performing in at least 3 years. I can't wait!
Thursday, March 23, 7pm - 1am. All ages.
Most important #GDC question of the week.
Day three of #GDC! Really looking forward to learning from other developers and making new friends today 🙏🏾❤️ had to rep my favorite game of course, to the surprise of absolutely no one I'm sure 😂 #ootd #gdc23 #MassEffect
The actual sweets from Candy Crush. #GDC
I was pretty dang excited to go play board games with a bunch of #GDC pals tonight, but I wouldn't send a knight out on a dog like this.
I'll be in orbit of #gdc this afternoon if you'd like to meet.
At #gdc party. Tom Hall (the id software one) came up to our table at random asking if he was at the right party.
If you're at #GDC, join us on our panel "Incorporating Black Game Studies in the Classroom: Benefits to Everyone" on Tuesday, March 21st at 9:30 am - 10:30 am in the West Hall, Room 2014! I'm honored to speak alongside Lindsay Grace, Latoya Peterson and Akil Fletcher! #GDC23 #gamedev #BlackMastodon
A very happy #gdc to everyone who celebrates!
I discovered 13 year old business cards in my jacket pocket! Thought I had forgotten them.
Doubt I'll give out any this year. #GDC
Mrs Tek and I are playing tour guide for a young lady friend who's here for #GDC. We bumped into a group of guys going in to the conference who started to chat with... me. "I can tell when we're around other gamers!"
No, my dude. You obviously can't.
On my way to the Game Developers Conference #GDC in SF. I look forward to enjoying several days talking about things other than ChatGPT and LLMs.
I'll be wandering around #GDC later this week. Happy to chat with multiplayer-inclined folks about the Kind Games paper we just put out.
Playdate Devs! If you are going to be at #GDC and want to meet other #Playdate friends, reply here and say hi to each other if you want to meet others! Also, if you are doing any Playdate related or adjacent talks/events post them here! 👀#panicplaydate
GDC has been kind enough to make my 2015 presentation available to watch online for free.
I discuss some of the work our nonprofit org does with video games to prevent violence. Also, why we believe video games are the best solution to engage & persuade young people about sensitive issues.

Anybody know if there's any #Fediverse or #Activitypub related groups or companies that will be at #GDC #GDC#2023 next week?
Awesome, finished demo preparation for the #gdc #GameDevelopersConference in a few weeks. If you're around, interested in the process around game dev (source control, builds, ...) find the #jetbrains booth!
The one thing I dislike about #GDC season (and other trade shows) it that I have a to hang out on LinkedIn more to set meetings.
It an energy drainer for me. Somehow the digital equivalent of unwanted socialization for an introvert.
Who all is going to #GDC2023 and what are you looking forward to?
Right, well, we’re off to #SanFrancisco for #GDC for the first time in a while. How exciting!
