join us for an evening of chill chats with nick!

Game Developers of Wellington and NZ Games Festival invite you to join Nick and our lovely host James Everett for a free, intimate chat about his work across various areas of the games industry.

Nick Suttner has spent 10+ years championing the best independent video games, first in the press at EGM/1UP.com, and then in senior account/biz dev roles at PlayStation and Oculus, signing titles such as The Witness, Firewatch, and Thumper.

Suttner has also written multiple books on the work of Fumito Ueda, and has recently contributed writing/editing work to Celeste and Guacamelee! 2.

Suttner is a tastemaker (ugh) and has given multiple talks, hosted various podcasts, and generally fought for independent games in every medium he could. These days, Suttner is a freelance writer, designer, and consultant on both his own projects and others.
