  • Chris DeLeon
    Chris DeLeon

    Chris DeLeon helps adults around the world learn remote team game development through his service, HomeTeamGameDev. HomeTeam’s approach is fully project-based, with no grades or assessments, instead teaching members 1-on-1 through questions they run into during hands-on development. HomeTeam is the third iteration of Chris’ game development practice communities, the first of which he co-founded at Carnegie Mellon as Game Creation Society, and the second he founded at Georgia Tech as VGDev. Outside of HomeTeam, he’s the chair of IGDA Los Angeles, IndieCade Alumni Lead (formerly one of the speaker organizers), and volunteers with several local high school game development programs. He’s been a speaker at IndieCade Europe, History of Games International Conference, and several times for GDC. Chris lives in Los Angeles, where he takes dozens of pictures a day of his fluffy gray cat, EDI.

  • Sam Roberts
    Sam Roberts

    “Sam Roberts is the Festival Director of IndieCade. He began creating narrative worlds and playable experiences when he discovered Dungeons and Dragons at the age of 8. Roleplaying games gave me an outlet for my imagination and a playground for social engagement. My drive to work in creative collaboration with artists of all stripes led me to a study of theater and creative direction, while my ongoing need to explore the collision of technology and expression drove me through that winding path to the field of games and play.

    While my portfolio of creative work covers theater, film, video games and board games in roles as a designer, director, adaptor, and more, I am most widely known for my work helping found and direct IndieCade, the ‘Sundance of Games.’

    I currently work at the USC Games, the #1 game design school in the world, where I oversee production, manage curriculum, and teach classes on tabletop roleplaying game design and systems design.”
