Google and Amazon continue to be active tool providers to the Open Source Game at all levels and indie tools like Blender continue to grow in strength and reach. This roundtable will discuss the current state of Open in the industry, how it might become a disruptive force in the way that games are built in the future and where and how those new to Open can get involved.
