A post-mortem love story for a video game. A game designer’s take on the universe.
That’s what Cipher Prime cofounders Will Stallwood and Dain Saint will talk about at Game Developers Conference, the world’s largest game developer conference, held in San Francisco this week. It’s their first time speaking at the conference, Stallwood said, though their games have been mentioned before.
“It’s a massive deal and I’m super excited,” Stallwood wrote to us. He’s going to talk specifically about the Cipher Prime game Intake.
Young game developer Greg Lobanov will also be one of ten speakers for the conference’s closing “Indie Soapbox” session.


Here’s who else from the Philly tech scene will be speaking at conferences outside of Philly. Hit us up in the comments if we missed you.
