Thanks for the fix. Any knowledge of when ALL panel videos will be up?

Awesome recap!

Slight edit: the people you have listed in the last part of the business track for building your business are incorrect

Best RDC ever…

Thank you for putting on such a fantastic event! Looking forward to what comes next. :smile:

So sad I had to leave before the final picture taken with everyone. Dx Next year, and last year, but next year again.

Really hyped up for next year’s RDC! This is one was my first and it did not disappoint!

I noticed there were a couple people that looked pretty official (I don’t have any names, so …) taking photos. Are there any intentions on releasing these photos in the future?

It doesn’t work lol - can’t play it :frowning:

Sorry but I think we deserve that award image

WRONG. (No clue why our game was cap locked)

By the way, we open sourced ours. I take full credit for any code that starts with “–TheNexusAvenger”, and any of the code is free to use for whatever you could want to do with it.

Really loved my first RDC! I had an incredible experience. Thanks for the staff and their hard work! Hope to go next year!


Appreciate it man! Was looking for something like this.

Ate lunch with David, I will never forget that day :heart_eyes:


Also our game isn’t on here but…

Good news, Tunnel Vision, the first game on the list of submissions, has been updated and is now playable. This is the version of the game that was featured on the RDC stream. Be sure to try it out in Multiplayer.
