IGDA Foundation Charity Dinner to Feature John Romero and David Jaffe

Filed under: Thoughts and Rants — Tom B @ 3:22 pm

The Second Annual IGDA Foundation Charity Dinner will be on the evening of Thursday, October 27th at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel, LAX, in Los Angeles, in conjunction with this year’s IGDA Leadership Forum. This year John Romero will be continuing his “legend on legend” interviewing of seminal game designers with an interview of David Jaffe.

The dinner, preceded by a cocktail reception, will feature a live, on-stage discussion between John Romero and David Jaffe. David, the former Creative Director at Sony Computer Entertainment of America, is best known for his work on the Twisted Metal and God of War series and is presently the co-founder of independent game studio, Eat, Sleep Play. Romero, a prolific game developer himself, is best known for his design and coding work on such titles as DOOM, Quake and Wolfenstein 3D is now co-founder of Loot Drop, an independent social game studio.

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 had design documentary discussions with Will Wright, Sid Meier, Bob Bates, Don Daglow, Noah Falstein and others with many more in progress.

The IGDA Foundation, a Charity by Developers for Developers, supports the mission of the IGDA through Scientific, Educational and Charitable works. Proceeds from the dinner will help support the Foundation’s projects including numerous game related scholarships, including the Eric Dybsand Memorial Scholarship for AI Development, the Accessibility SIG “Gamers with Disabilities” Project and the other events and programs of IGDA and its Special Interest Groups.
