Vector is pleased to announce that independent game designer Jerry Belich will be one of our keynote speakers! Jerry will also be working this semester as the Vernon Wilson Endowed Chair of Game Design at Eastern Kentucky Universities Gaming Institute. You can read more about that on the EKU Gaming Institute’s blog post.
Jerry Belich is an alternative game designer, using hardware, electronics, and software to create immersive interactive and storytelling experiences. He went independent in 2013 after a decade of professional software development, now consulting for other indies and companies in game design, narrative writing, and installation work. His first hardware project, the award winning Choosatron, has traveled all over the world, featured at dozens of events, and sparked imaginations all along the way! He plans on continuing creating his own inventions and games, and hopes to help many others to do the same through his talks, workshops, and through openness of his own work.
We are very pleased that Jerry will be joining us at our April 30th event, and are incredibly excited that he will be spending time with the students at EKU!
