Hey guys! During this past year, I have been part of a group arranging LiU Game Conference. During the conference, speakers, exhibitors, and students meet one afternoon to share their interests in games. We had a whopping 800+ people who reserved a ticket! Riot Games (creators of League of Legends), TellTale Games (creators of The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones games), Epic Games (creators of the Unreal Engine) and DICE (creators of Battlefield and Star Wars Battlefront) were some of the speakers at the event. No wonder that we got 800+ to join us. My job? Decorations. I was responsible for making the event look and feel nice. Here is a sample of what it looked like in the end.

But this was not all I did. I was responsible for an app as well. I made a conference application that made use of AR to make the conference feel even more alive. With the app, you could find Pokemon, fend off asteroids, battle a dragon, die, and then battle the dragon again. It was a concept that seemed to be appreciated by the attendees. Here are some screenshots.

During the event, there was a panel discussion as to what the game industry will look like in Sweden. I was part of that panel, sitting next to Paradox, Microsoft and Martin Ekdahl Invest. I had great fun and it was really inspiring to hear what the others had to say about the subject.

Overall, just Wow! There is no other word that can describe what I felt that day better than the word Wow! I look forward to next year!
