Future Is Games is an organization devoted to promoting educational and cultural growth through the medium of games. We aim to host a number of events with the goal of continuing this education, beginning with our inaugural conference -- #FIGCON. The event will have talks for developers and hobbyists alike, as well as workshops and a showcase of local and national products.
We hope that we may not only provide great content for games as a whole, but also display Phoenix as a growing development community gaining recognition and support from the industry.

We would like to sincerely thank our primary sponsor, the University of Advancing Technology:
We've been interested for quite some time now in finding a way to bring new types of education and discussion to the industry. Additionally, we wanted to resurrect Phoenix as a home for game developers, regardless of whether they are indie or AAA.
This combination of ideas led to the creation of FIG, a conference that could not only bring talent to the southwest but also promote the exploration of the relationships and impact that games have on industries around us, including our own. With that, we have set out to provide a creative outlet that will allow such discussions to affect the way that we look at the evolution of the games industry.
