|Overview:||The GDC Microtalks session returns with more short talks packed with gigantic concepts, presented by a bevy of distinctive voices from the world of games and play. The Microtalk concept is game-like and simple: each of the session's ten speakers gets 20 slides, each of which will be displayed for exactly 16 seconds before automatically advancing. That gives each speaker five minutes and 20 seconds to talk about things that they might not otherwise get to discuss on stage at GDC. Join anna anthropy, Ben Cerveny, Carla Fisher, George Fan, Kim Swift, Leigh Alexander, Manveer Heir, Mare Sheppard and Tom Bissell, along with curator and host Richard Lemarchand, for an hour of scintillating ideas about the past, present and future of play. What will you be talking about after this year's session?|
