A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next. 


Remember that time game maker Tim Schafer asked for $400,000 on Kickstarter and the world gave him $2.5 million? You might be wondering what he’s done with said riches, and how he’ll be putting them to good use. Last night Schafer provided the following images as inspiration for Cliff Bleszinksi, who took over hosting duties at this year’s Game Developers Choice Awards.

I’m not a game developer myself (yet), but as you can see, the images are more-or-less in line with the general expectation of how game studios operate.
