I'll be taking some of my game design course material - Paid to Play: The Business of Game Design - and making a 4-hr presentation from it. I'll be speaking at Snakes & Lattes in Toronto this Sunday, 11a-4p. It's free to attend. The gist of the presentation is how the game industry works, how to pitch and sell your game ideas, and where do you stand to make the most money in doing this.

Most probably don't know me, but I'm a 25-yr game industry veteran with about 3 dozen published titles to my credit. Nearly 1 million games sold, around the world. I've been teaching my course off and on for the last 10 years, and many established game inventors got started by taking my course or using me as a consultant. My course has jumpstarted the game designing careers for a good number of well-respected inventors.

If any of you live nearby, I hope to see you Sunday.

I own your book; it's a good read. I hope you get a good turnout. I would definitely attend if I wasn't in California.

Anyone in the area should put time in his or her schedule to take part in this event. I don't see why someone interested in games would do otherwise.
