Overview: Inspired by the perennial refrain from the West Wing's President Bartlet, game audio asks "What's Next?" Ten different stories from 10 different game audio professionals, from voice actors to audio directors to composers to VR hardware designers, all chiming in with 5 minutes and 20 second stories addressing the question, "What's Next"? The microtalk panel format is a panel of 10 speakers, each speaking for exactly 5 min 20 seconds, with 20 slides auto-advancing every 18 seconds. Here are the speakers and their microtalk subjects.
