Metatopia is a convention that takes place in Morristown, NJ each year as part of the Dexposure suite of conventions. This one is dedicated to designers and publishers in the form a play-testing convention. Here budding and seasoned game designers can get valuable feedback on their designs that may or may not turn into games that hit the market. Avonelle Wing was kind enough to join me on the show to discuss Metatopia: where it came from and where it wants to go. She offered insight into how some gamers look to support the industry rather than directly participate (i.e. design/publish games) in it.
Metatopia will take place on the weekend of Nov. 4-6 in Morristown, NJ. Please head to dexposure.com to register or learn more about it.
