International indie success, 'Armello', is the result of League of Geeks' quest to make the best digital board game ever made; a game built upon millennia of tabletop design, whilst leveraging the power of video games.
League of Geeks directors, Blake Mizzi and Trent Kusters, will step participants through the design process and decisions that guided League of Geeks through their almost five year journey bringing tabletop adventure to life; from the eight month paper prototyping phase, through the creation of a new IP, and the unique challenges it all presented.
Through a series of deep dives, attendees will see the design processes and methodologies driving LoG's original digital board game, Armello. Most importantly though, attendees will see the unique challenges LoG's ambitious goal created and how the team prevailed in overcoming them - and where they didn't.
Blake Mizzi is responsible for the majority of Armello's game and systems design, and Trent Kusters' its creative direction and narrative design. Hearing these two development perspectives in concert will serve game designers of all skill and experience levels, as well as those with an interest in alternate production models.
