E3 started today out in LA and already 2 games made here in Chicago are making huge news. Every year Microsoft picks 5 games to be part of their massive Summer of Arcade event. Just announced this morning is that 2 of the 5 titles are games that were made by Chicago game development houses. Robomodo with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD and Iron Galaxy' with The Wreckateer.
The inclusion of these two games showcases the amazingly diverse community of game developers here in Chicago, a community that many in the tech sector do not even know exists.
So we're going to do something about this. The Chicago IGDA has teamed up with Tech Week to form The Gaming Lounge. This is a massive space where 15 Chicago game developers of all varieties will be showing what they're working on. Many of the games being shown for the first time in this lounge. It's a great opportunity to see what we've been up to before the games are released and a great way to unwind from the great talks.
