We are going to the TGC for several reasons. One, it's a great opportunity to get our name out there. By going to this, we have the chance to maybe pick up a sponsor and gain some followers. Two, knowledge. The TGC has several sessions per day that are very specific for different areas. Some are for level design, others are for marketing. Some are just for plain fun. Three, the experience. With 700 people attending the previous year's conference, it can only get better. They are even doubling the space that they had last year. This year, EA (many games) and Insomniac Games (Ratchet and Clank) are two of the sponsors I know of. Finally, it'll give us an idea of what all the other indie developers are doing. We get to see guys just like us that fit game development into their busy lives. We could even make some friend out of it or pick up some future Flaming Brain workers.
