Project Horseshoe is a think-tank style conference addressing the industry-wide challenges of modern game design.
Come be a part of an elite group of brilliant minds working to positively influence the art and science of game design. We combine intense and effective workgroup techniques with Texas-sized hospitality in an all-inclusive event that may change your life.
This is an invitation-only event. If you know someone who should be invited, please contact Teresa Avallone.
