Last week, OETA ran a feature on the growing games industry in Oklahoma. Overall the feature is great. A number of people were interviewed including James Simpson and Luke Simkins of Goldfire, and Myself featured un Divine Knight Gaming. The report features a lot from Goldfire and a lot of information about the growing game education programs in the state.
I will take issue with one part of the report. In it, a student, who is featured as the video still, is interviewed and he holds a fairly negative view of the potential for game development opportunities in Oklahoma. While that is true for now, the potential for growth is highlighted throughout the report.
Another interesting thing I learned while watching this report is that there is a gaming expo in Tulsa this weekend. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend but that shouldn’t stop you. Check out the Heartland Gaming Expo.
