The party will start on Monday at 18:00 GMT and it will take a pause at 24:00 GMT. It will start again at 18:00 GMT on Tuesday and finish at 24:00 GMT on Tuesday. Each developer will have their own section in the forum. All sections will be open for posting from the very beginning of the party on Monday at 18:00 GMT. To avoid confusion and traffic however we have split the party in timeblocks of 2 hours each. Developers will attend the party throughout the timeblock they booked. This does not mean however that they will not be present during the rest of the time, it just means that if someone wants to be certain that a developer would be present he or she would better visit the developer's forum section during the timeblock that this developer have booked. Here comes the schedule:


Monday 29th of November
18:00 - 20:00: Tale of Tales, White Birds Productions, Legacy Interactive
20:00 - 22:00: Josh Mandel, Step Creative Group, Microids
22:00 - 24:00: Autumn Moon Entertainment, Al Lowe, GMX/Artematica


Tuesday 30th of November
18:00 - 20:00: Pendulo Studios, Gnosis Games, Prograph
20:00 - 22:00: Wicked Studios, Razbor Studios, L'art, AGDI/Himalaya

*All times are GMT
**Timeblocks might change before the even starts, check our forums for possible changes in the schedule


Ken & Roberta Williams as well as Frogwares could not guarantee a timeblock for reasons mentioned earlier. The Birthday Party forum sections will remain open on Wednesday as well, for those who will not be able to attend the party during Monday or Tuesday (for one reason or another) and if developers have the time they will answer some questions then also. Then on Thursday the forums will be locked.
