Topic of the Show:GDC 2022 Impressions
For the first time in a long time, the Game Developers Conference was held in person, and the Incineroar of Indies Jill Grodt had the pleasure of attending. Join Jill as she talks about what it was like being back at a conference that holds special meaning to her, what games she got to play, and her overall impressions of the smaller experience. We also dissect one of GDC’s biggest controversies: a prevalent former GI staff member…licking a burrito (I know, I’m sick too).
