I’m back home from San Francisco, slowly digesting everything that happened at the GDC. I met a huge amount of passionate and talented game developers, I made new friends with some and I deepened my friendship with others. I saw the Golden Gate Bridge! I was slightly drunk most nights, I had fantastic conversations and I was awed by the beautiful city of San Francisco. I also rode on a cable car, walked about the Fisherman’s Wharf, visited the Arcade Museum and explored Mission, Castro, Chinatown, Japantown and of course Downtown. I was groped by Cactus. I was at the bit-101 party, I was at the awesome Game Over/ Continue? show, I was at the Awards Ceremony. I talked with all of the IGF finalists and tried every game. I spotted Warren Spector and John Romero on the street outside of Moscone Center, but not at the same time. I saw some amazing lectures, I met almost the entire indie scene. I saw the inside of LucasArts, thanks to Jens Andersson and David Nottingham! I got a bit tanned. I was inspired! I ate at an american diner. I met fans and at the same time I was a total fanboy. I did not see Bayion. I shouted at the top of my voice when Erik won the Grand Prize! I was always surrounded by brilliant, interesting people.
