Shawnee 10.0 Game, Simulation & Immersive Technologies Conference
Shawnee 10.0 Game, Simulation & Immersive Technologies Conference is devoted to all aspects of gaming, game design, simulation and immersive technology. This year, we welcome our keynote speaker, Steve Reid, from Red Storm Entertainment. Steve Reid is the executive vice president/managing director for Red Storm Entertainment, a division of Ubisoft Entertainment. He is one of the original founders of Red Storm (1996), the studio known for creating the TOM CLANCY line of games and helping to establish the genre of squad-based tactical shooters. After a successful run as an independent developer/publisher, Red Storm was acquired by Ubisoft (2000). Before games, Steve received both bachelor's and master's of fine arts degrees in Printmaking from East Carolina University (1983-1993). He has taught a variety of college art disciplines and often collaborates with local and national colleges as an advisor on digital art curriculum.
