Cary, N.C. (April 22, 2009) — The developers of the self-titled post-apocalyptic MMO Fallen Earth have announced that they will exhibit at the first annual Triangle Game Conference (TGC). Taking place at the Marriot City Center and Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, N.C. on April 29 and 30, the conference will host representatives from gaming companies across the United States.
The TGC is the East Coast forum for networking, career building and sharing of the area's gaming industry expertise. The conference presents a program of lectures by industry experts, a Career Lounge and Game Development University. Members of the Fallen Earth development team will be on hand at the conference to demo the game and meet with fellow game developers and development students to talk about the soon-to-be released title.
Participation in this event is a continuation of the commitment that the Fallen Earth development team has made to fans and students through their national grassroots tour and IGDA sponsorships. In addition to making ongoing improvements to environments and interface elements, the team is dedicated to building relationships with fans and educating future game professionals on their experiences with developing a groundbreaking MMO.
“We are excited to be a part of this inaugural event and we hope that gaming in North Carolina continues to grow,” said Jessica Orr, product manager for Fallen Earth. “The Triangle has become one of the largest concentrations of video game companies in the nation, and having such a showing of area companies is the next step to securing this area as an official gaming hub.”
