The conference schedule for Two5six is available now

Two5six, our annual conference and festival, is a three-day celebration of a life well-played. If you haven’t been to Two5six before, you still have several days to buy a ticket for our conference and other events. The final schedule is now available for our conference next Saturday, May 16th. You can view the full festival schedule on Two5six’s website.

Saturday’s conference will bring together leaders from game design and other industries to discuss the connections between games and other creative spaces. Game designers David O’Reilly (Mountain), Kara Stone (Sext Adventure), and Torfi Frans Olafsson (Eve Universe) will share  the stage with culture-shapers like Randy Hunt (Creative director at Etsy) and Christian Rudder (Founder of OKCupid) to find the common threads between them. Our keynote speakers, Amy & Ryan Green, are creating That Dragon, Cancer, a game about processing their son Joel’s terminal cancer. An excerpt of a documentary about the Greens and the development of their game will be screened Friday night at the Two5six film fest.
