It’s such a great honor to be invited to speak at IAAPA! I attended my first IAAPA back in 2017, been participating on discussions since 2018, and I have…

Gregg (and Dana Ware and Alexandre Teodoresco 🎪) thanks so much for the sober and real talk about the challenges of creating experiences in virtual spaces (I won’t say the M word). As you all mentioned the distribution network isn’t there yet and it is key that any experience created in a virtual space be accessible by any device…headset, mobile, laptop, etc.

I also can’t thank you enough for addressing failure. Too many of these talks gloss over the hard part and only celebrate the end result. All of the lessons (and reasons for success) come from the failure along the way and we should never shy away from talking about it.

Looking forward to what you all do in the near future.

Hi everybody. If you’re attending GDC this week please join Adam Bezark, Lex Rhodes, and me for our Game Narrative Summit talk, Storytelling Siblings: The Kindred Connection between Games and Theme Parks. We start at 14:40 PDT TODAY, Tuesday July 20th and we’ll be in the chat for live Q&A. Hope to see you there!
