Speaker Announcement 2018: Jake Sones

We are super thrilled to announce our first speaker for 2018’s Vector Conferences: Jake Sones! An industry veteran, Jake will be joining us this April at Vector 2018! Jake is one of our keynote speakers this year, and we’re going to be announcing the rest shortly.

Jake’s Bio:

Sones is a game designer with 18 years of industry experience, with most of that time split between working at Sony Online Entertainment, Insomniac Games, and Blizzard Entertainment. In 2014, he founded Shovelware Games, a studio focused on developing small scope titles and providing game design consultation. Jake enjoys minimalist design mechanics and despises writing in third person.


Again, we are super thrilled that Jake will be joining us this year for our fourth convention! He will be able to bring his experience in both AAA and indie development to both students and mature developers alike.
