Past gaming events: devcom 2022 (quick overview with social media)

devcom 2022 (or #ddc2022) was the first event that took place on-site since devcom 2019 before the pandemic hit the world, but for me it was digital-only, and what better way to share some of the impressions than with a round-up of social media posts?

After I teased about the talks I wanted to attend in the Upcoming gaming events: devcom 2022 article, my final schedule turned out to be a bit different, as it didn’t focus so much on the importance of storytelling, but music in games.

The number of talks I could watch from the comfort and safety of my home wasn’t as big as it could have been. This was due to some work I had to do on both days and medical appointments I couldn’t move around for too long. Yes, it was a very different experience than before, and while using the streaming option, I really missed meeting people in person, but with the pandemic still going on and my wife being pregnant, there wasn’t any other way.

So here we go with the various tweets I posted on the Emotional Multimedia Ride Twitter page during the event that lasted two days:

Monday, August 22, 2022
@DerReichart opens @devcom_global’s #ddc2022 to invite everyone interested in #gamedevelopment both in person at koelnmesse in #Cologne, but also those #online, to attend #sessions, #panels, and #workshops

@InonZur does a great job of explaining the structure and effect of composing memorable #music in both #games and #movies which serves as #communication during his talk at @devcom_global’s #ddc2022

Next up at @devcom_global’s #ddc2022: @Richard_Jacques and Sébastien Croteau of @DeMonstres’s #audio #music talk “Intergalactic Symphonies – The Music Of Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy”

Attending #game #music design talk of @oderiviere “Music won’t change your Game, Music Design will!” at @devcom_global’s #ddc2022 online

@oderiviere is doing a very honest, informative and fun talk about what #music can do in #games at @devcom_global’s #ddc, showing how #gamedesign and #musicdesign can come together in a meaningful way

Tuesday, August 23, 2022
My second (#digital) day of @devcom_global’s #ddc2022 starting with @JesperKyd and @AlonKaplan’s #fireside #chat “Two Worlds – One Art” on creating #music for #games and #film… although 10 minutes late due to technical streaming problems

@SbastienCroteau’s @devcom_global #ddc2022 talk about #game #sounddesign using #metal vocalists was one of the most interesting and fun talks so far and everyone should see what the unique @DeMonstres did in the past and are working on right now for the #gamesindustry

My next @devcom_global #ddc2022 session is Mark Estdale (@3571),@AEJORDAN,@uew’s #panel #discussion “Voice Casting and Recording Masterclass” about #acting and #casting in #games

Last live @devcom_global #ddc2022 session online for me today: Alexander Mishuli from @OwlcatGames talks about “From Tabletop to CRPG”, covering #tabletopgaming and #computer #RPG #games

I’ll try to find the time to delve a bit deeper into the content of the talks and what the online experience was like, compared to the previous two years. But it might take a while, especially with gamescom coverage following shortly, not even taking into consideration various Halloween reviews in the pipeline.
