About:

‘Feral Vector is not like other game design events. If you feel like an impostor at games events, you’re not only welcome here, we encourage you to attend. If you are in the videogames industry, but looking for more than it can give, Feral Vector is for you. Feral Vector is fundamentally about outside influences, accessible tools, and the fringes of game design – because that’s where the interesting stuff happens.’
