A little while ago I made a post about the Mochis, an awards show that spotlighted the best games in a selection of numerous categories. Nominations for the Mochis has come to a close, and the awards ceremony is just a month away. Called Flash Gaming Summit, it is not only an awards ceremony but a conference for flash game developers that will take place for one day in San Francisco, California on Sunday March 22 and will last from 6 AM to 9 PM. Sponsored by companies such as Adobe, Kongregate, and Nonoba the conference will feature awards and multiple guest speakers. I’ve discussed the awards previously however I didn’t get into the part that made this stand out from other award shows; the guest speakers.
Organised by Mochi Media, Flash Gaming Summit seems to have a great line-up of speakers that includes famous developers, portal owners, publishers, and even CEO’s of big corporations. Some notable speakers include David Scott and Paul Pierce of Casual Collective, Jay Bibby of JayisGames, Sean Cooper developer of the BoxHead series, Richard Fields of Mindjolt Games and many more. This line-up should make for some interesting presentations about the distributing, money, and statistics side of flash games. For more information about each speaker, you can check them out here.
Big conferences cost money though (and the riff-raff needs to be kept out), so tickets are being sold for $100 over at EventBrite. I talked to Ada Chen of MochiMedia though, and she agreed to give all my loyal readers a 10% discount on the price.
