Forget sci-fi and high fantasy—the most exciting role-playing setting is right here in our modern world! Join our panel of indie developers as they talk about what inspired them to adapt internet forums, instant messaging, and interactive live-action video in their games. It’s art imitating life imitating art imitating life imitating… well, you get it. Featuring the upcoming games Emily is Away <3 and Pixel Puzzle Makeout League.
