Dave Gilbert is coming, to town.
« on: September 12, 2012, 09:15:29 am »
You'd better watch out, you'd better not cry. You'd better not pout I'm telling you why: Dave Gilbert is coming, to town.

That's right! Dave Gilbert! He sees you when you're sleeping!

Famous American adventure game developer Dave Gilbert's coming down the pub. Ben and I are going to meet him at The Spice of Life in London at 18h30 on the 18th of September.

We will be TALKING TO, LOOKING AT and, hopefully a little later on USING him.

If you'd like to join us, feel free. Probably best to follow @danthat or @timegentleman for updates, or just meet us there. Look for an American talking to two people who don't really look like Dan or Ben from Ben There, Done That!, and that'll be us!

Mmm, that's my birthday, but it's a couple of hours away, but it would be awesome to meet him, but it's a work night, but would very much like indie drinks, but am doing so later in the month at Eurogamer anyway, but... oh god. Someone help? :P

I don't really drink beer, can your beer-owingness be exchanged for something more exotic, like a blackcurrent and lemonade? ;)

This is totally awesome news!

Just to clarify, can anyone come to this? I'm not a dev of any sort, just an adventure games enthusiast who would love to meet Dave and Ben and Dan and oh god I'm coming across as a screaming fan, aren't I?

PLEASE READ MY BEN AND DAN FAN FIC.

No but seriously. Is this open to anyone, or will I as a non-indie just spend several hours looking confused whilst all you guys talk about code or something?

Cheers =)

Oh, I also owe Ben and Dan a pint cause I bought the games in a Steam sale.
