Overview: For the last decade, Jason Della Rocca and Eric Zimmerman have organized the rant session. Each year a panel of industry professionals get together to b*tch about whatever the hell they want. For this 10th anniversary rant, we're bringing back the best ranters from years past. We've got pissed-off designers like Brenda Romero and Clint Hocking. And evil geniuses with an axe to grind, like Heather Chaplin and Justin Hall. Plus plenty more angry ranters and other fun surprises. Cutting through the clutter of polite industry chit-chat, the rant session takes on the issues that matter to developers in a no-holds-barred format. Fasten your seat belts and prepare for strong opinions from some of the game industry's most distinguished and dissatisfied personalities. The invited panelists will be given free reign. You have been warned. The rant session is about identifying solutions as well as problems. Topics will address issues of concrete importance to the game industry. And we may catch a glimpse of a better future for us all. Come help us celebrate 10 years of giving 'em hell.
