hello im worried about going to the DICE summit next week and being alone and feeling like an impostor next to like, sean vanaman and jade raymond and amy hennig and tim Schafer and people who have shipped things

im also quite scared I won't have anything interesting to say to them and they will just be like who is this

@caraellison pro tip I stole from Darius at gdc — see how long you can go talking about anything other than games. Ask about books, or museum visits, or gardening...just literally anything else. WAY better conversations.

Follow

@courtney this is a really good tip except I probably haven't got that much mileage outside games any more either since I look at a screen all the time. maybe i'll talk about muay thai

@caraellison yeah, absolutely talk about Muay Thai! And part of it is forcing yourself to...be multi-dimensional.

@caraellison so yknow, read a book on the plane and then talk about it.
