Wizard World’s hosted Comic Con event begins today in Austin, Texas at the Austin Convention Center. The convention runs from Friday, November 11th through Sunday, November 13th. GameSalad is excited to be part of this legendary pop culture event. We will be exhibiting on the main show floor as well as speaking in a dedicated panel.
You can meet the GameSalad team in person at Booth 203 where we are exhibiting with our partners and friends behind the Redemption Comic. GameSalad has worked with partner Eden Films Ltd and Precog Studios to create Redemption The Comic. Redemption combines traditional comic book narrative with elements of adventure gaming to explore the adventures of action heroine Elizabeth Grey as she battles the demonic forces of Darkness.
The GameSalad panel, “Interactive Storytelling- Games & Comics,” will take place on Saturday November 12th at 5pm in Room B. Join us for a lively discussion about the future of comics, mobile applications, and publishing. Additionally, this panel will cover the multi faceted relationship between game creation and comics. We will explore how artists can create digital friendly assets and transform their comics into an interactive storytelling experience. We will also discuss self publishing options (GameSalad software) and the future of comic discovery and audience accessibility through digital outlets.
Confirmed panelists include:
Billy Garretsen, Lead Game Developer – GameSalad
Rolf Mohr – Art Director, Concept Artist – Precog Studios
Tony Salvaggio – Technical Artist/Animator – Total Immersion Software
Alan J. Porter- Writer, Pop Culture Historian
