Boston GameLoop 2010, the third-annual all-day game development unconference, will take place on Saturday, August 28th in Cambridge, MA.  It’s a self-organizing game conference, and it goes something like this:

  • 9am-10am: People show up and spend an hour getting to know each other’s shared interests
  • 10am-11am: The group informally votes on proposed sessions and put those up on the big board
  • 11am: the conference begins!

There are rooms for people to meet in, and a big board with a schedule grid to coordinate it all. Last year’s GameLoop was a huge success: there were about 90 attendees from about 35 companies, including local companies like Irrational Games, Harmonix, and Rockstar New England as well as developers from places like Bethesda Softworks, EA Mythic, and Vicarious Visions.

Registration for the event is $40.  Breakfast and lunch is provided. To register, go here: For more information, visit the Boston Post Mortem website.
