Please Support IGDA Foundation Dinner with Romero & Wright – November 5
Game Legends Will Wright and John Romero Headline First Annual Foundation Charity Dinner at IGDA Leadership Forum on Friday, November 5 at the San Francisco Airport Marriott, the final day of the IGDA Leadership Forum.
The dinner, preceded by a cocktail reception, will feature a live, on-stage discussion between John Romero and Will Wright, whose work on series such as the Sims and Spore has helped define the game industry. Romero, a prolific game developer himself, is best known for his design and coding work on such titles as DOOM, Quake and Wolfenstein 3D. The designer-to-designer discussion is in keeping with the mission of the Romero Archives, which is dedicated to preserving the work, processes and history of game design and game designers. Romero, a passionate advocate for the preservation of game design history, has already completed design documentary discussions with Sid Meier, Bob Bates, Don Daglow, Noah Falstein and others with many more in progress.
Proceeds from the dinner will help support the various charitable projects supported by the Foundation including the Romero Archives, the Eric Dybsand Memorial Scholarship for AI Development, the Accessibility SIG “Gamers with Disabilities” Project and the other charitable works of the IGDA Foundation.
Cost is $125 for Leadership Forum attendees and IGDA members and one guest each and $150 for general public (group pricing available).
