Game Developers Conference, this past week, played host to our first exhibit: The History of 3D. We saw numerous visitors at the exhibit, many of whom stayed and played the games for quite some time. Among those visitors was Frederick Raynal, who designed Alone in the Dark and ported Alphawaves from the Atari ST to the PC. Both of those games were playable in the exhibit. The show was a marvelous success for all involved, but a picture is worth a thousand words. James Mitchell, our resident picture master (moving and otherwise), took some great shots which are presented here. More to come next week. For now, we’re just exhausted! All of our volunteers worked their tails off to make this exhibit happen. I think we can all agree, they made it a success more than anything else.

- The 2011 GDC Signature Poster — Way back in 2011, when we were still an un-funded non-profit with little to our names but the promise of a 10×10 booth at GDC, my storage locker full of old game equipment, and a half-dozen volunteers, we had a great idea. We printed out this poster, done by Eric Wall for Games Are Evil. [...]
