Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
j0. Deaf dude here. *glances around, noting the weird looks*
Okay, explanation then.
I'm Sean Danielson of Aydemir Films Machinima, and an avid gamer.
Also. I'm deaf.
I read about the PAX a couple days ago, and immediately ordered a two-day pass. I may as well be spending both days playing the games there, heh. Not exactly going to be riding the Metro back and forth just for the expo.
My problem is this.
Naturally I'd like to attend the panels, but the communication barriers would prevent any real dialogue from occuring between me and the panelists.
Because I can't hear very well (ambient sound fine, voices are tough to discern). And I can't lipread to save my life.
So, I'm posting here in hopes I'll find some expo-goers who knows enough sign language to help translate for me while I attend PAX.
If anyone's going to PAX, and knows signlanguage, or has experience as a deaf sign language interpreter, feel free to contact me via AIM, MSN, YIM or Email.
