Main Presentation

Newt One: Postmortem

DevNAri: Ari Carrillo and Dev Jana

We’re DevNAri – a two-person game development team based in Minneapolis. We’re releasing our first game, Newt One, on PC/Mac on the same day we’re doing our Postmortem at IGDATC! It is our belief that games can make lives better – and happier! We lovingly craft nonviolent, colorful games with a focus on music and we hope to see you there.

Newt One rewards you for how much life you bring to the game world, not how much life you take from it. Embodying your progress through color and music, Newt One’s purpose is to generate happiness. We’ve shown it at 2D Con, Gamer’s Rhapsody, TEDx Minneapolis, MinneDemo, IndieCade, MinneBar, and other places like IGDATC last year.

Let’s talk about how awesome making a game can be while also how much of a pain in the butt it can be. Should be fun!

Plug My Thing!

In addition to informal verbal plugs, we’ll also show your trailer, user group, recruitment page, promo video, demo reel, etc. Grab the appropriate ticket – first come, first served.
