I am very pleased to announce that 2% Collaborative Projects in association with Politically Incorrect Games will be taking Trade Secret to Game Developers Conference 2011, courtesy of the University of Advancing Technology.
Back in early October, the team heard that our school U[A]T was hosting an internal competition for student projects. The winners would be given hotel, airfare, and an expo pass to GDC 2011 in San Francisco. On top of that already considerable investment, the school would also print off marketing materials such as fliers, shirts for the team, and other various marketing tools.
Our team has worked very hard polishing the game as well as preparing a presentation to woo the judges. After a lot of lost sleep, sacrificed weekends, and dedication by the team, we won out over 8 other teams, and will be sent to GDC along with the other winners, Project Tellus, with which we share many Team Members.
I'm very excited to go to GDC San Francisco for the first time and look forward to promoting the game as well as making many contacts this february.
As always Trade Secret can be found and played here: Trade Secret Game
