"You're actually here. The Gee Dee Cee. You don't know which session to check out first. Unlike your hometown, you're one artist among many here -- exciting and intimidating.
Exciting because between now and Friday you might be able to put together a game development team with the varied people here, but intimidating because you don't know a soul. Luckily people all have their names printed on their badges, that's one thing you don't have to worry about."
Sponsored by GameSetWatch/Gamasutra, Jim Munroe went to GDC 2009 and then wrote his experiences into a "social interaction simulator". The goal is to get together a development team for a new game, after encountering and making friends with artists, coders, designers and promoters. Each playthrough is partially randomized and outcomes vary.
