The Academy for Interactive Entertainment, located in the Armory at Seattle Center, has a couple of great opportunities to learn more about game art, game company careers and new games being developed in our area. There are two free interactive events there March 22, and a large event on May 3.
Saturday, March 22, is Interactive Experience Day. Tom Steinke, Owner of DigitalDNA Games, will speak about his career in creating video game art and there will be hands-on activities from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. See more.
Saturday, May 3, is iFEST, a free festival for the public to try-out new independent games and an opportunity for local indie game makers to show off their games. It’s free, but you should pre-register. See more and register.
