The ETX Game Design Academy is pleased to announce its Publisher-Designer Meet & Greet! Held on Sunday, June 3rd, from 1:30-4:00 pm, this event will allow publishers to explore and experience the games of eight selected designers, and provide feedback on both the games and the pitches.

Thanks to everyone who submitted! We received 22 excellent submissions, and are pleased to welcome the following designers and games to the 2018 Publisher Meet & Greet:

The Last Bastion
The Big Dig (and Abstract Academy, from the same creators)
Reckoning: Rise of the Automatons
1 Zillion BC
Collation Station
Seven Courts
Hop Shots


Not In My City

Designers: The Meet & Greet runs from 1:00-4:30 pm on Sunday, June 3rd in the Rembrandt room. Creators will have access starting at 10:00 am. Tables are approximately 60” long by 30” deep, and will be pre-assigned, so there’s no pressure to get there early. Please remember that no food, nor uncovered drinks, are permitted in the room (the cafeteria is just down the hall). Floor-standing banners are not permitted, but table-standing signs are encouraged! Everyone should have their pitches rehearsed, sell sheets printed, and be ready to share with publishers.

Note to Alternates: We aim to get ten tables in the room, so we definitely encourage you to attend, and be prepared. We’ll update you again when we find out for sure whether we can get a 9th and 10th table set for you.


Please Note:

Designers must be 18 years or older to enter. Limit two submissions per designer. All designs remain the intellectual property of the designers. ETX reserves the right to use submissions names, images and/or likeness for promotional purposes.
