How to create a game as a one person dev team.

You have an idea for a video game. It's a really good idea. A really, REALLY good idea. However, you have a few problems: You don't have an artist, you don't have a programmer, you don't have a writer, you don't have manager, you don't have office space, you don't have time, you don't have ....wait a minute. What do you have? A boundless imagination that created that wonderful idea of yours! Now apply that imagination to the development process!

With some simplification, open source programs, creative commons materials and a lot of “MacGyver-ing”, this session will show you how to make a version of your project at a very low budget by yourself (or with a hand or two from others need be). Will it 100% mirror the vision in your head? No, because your mind is perfect. You can ride space tofu dragons that spit jelly beans. Will this be a project that many others and yourself will be proud of? Certainly!

Attendees will leave this session previously thinking “Can I actually make this game idea I've thought about for years?” to “Of course I can, I'm going to get started right now!”.
