Keynote details:

"A Spaceteam Manifesto"

My talk will be about the seeds that inspired me to start making games, the nourishment that keeps me going, and the directions I want to grow. I'll share some Spaceteam lessons and surprises. And finally I'll introduce my Manifesto: a vision of where indie games could go in the future, emphasizing freedom for creators, freedom for players, and freedom for games.
