Overview: The GDC Microtalks are returning for another hour of game design deliberations, strategic inspirations and playful provocations! The Microtalk concept is simple: each speaker gets 20 slides, every one of which is displayed for exactly 16 seconds before automatically advancing, giving each speaker exactly five minutes and 20 seconds to tell the audience something they don't already know about games and play. Join nine fascinating game folks, along with Microtalks curator and MC Richard Lemarchand, for an expeditious exploration of the vast, fascinating landscape of game design. If you've never seen the GDC Microtalks, take a look at the super lineup of speakers and catch them this year!
