Designing the Future Panel

On Saturday, January 19th, 2013, I’ll be on a panel broadcast on Google+ called Designing the Future. It’s part of an overall event that day for Indie+.

Does designing science fiction roleplaying games present unique challengers for the writers? Are our predictions of the future more about the world of today than the world of tomorrow? Why are fantasy games more popular than science fiction? What makes Traveller such an enduring game system? Which science fiction games do the panel recommend?

All this and more as we set about Designing For The Future.

This is a Google+ Hangout On-Air Event which will be held and recorded from 6:30 to 7:30 PM Eastern Time on Saturday, January 19, 2013.

Or, for those on my coast, 3:30-4:30p. I’ll be alongside Jared Sorensen, Filamena Young, and Chris Tregenz, with Rich Rogers as host.

Hope to see (virtually) some of you there! And since it’s a Google+ Hangout on Air, it’ll be recorded for posterity.

    The link for the event gives a 404. I’m not sure if that’s expected or not at this point.

      While we’re designing the future, we’re living in the present. I assume that link should work at the expected time. :D
