    @Karuji, Unfortunately, A MAZE does not have any influence over entire city blocks of parking. If you have issue with the paying of parking you should speak to the city of Johannesburg :P. That being said, I don't believe the area where A MAZE is this year has any charging for parking :).

    The student tickets are still available, I believe. However, due to the difficulty of automating the verification of student credentials online, student tickets will only be available at the door. Bring a student card or something else to verify that you're a student.

    No Amaze game dev talks have never been canceled. At worst their format has been changed from a talk to a discussion.

    Unfortunately, the ticketing is a decision that has been made from Berlin to bring A MAZE Johannesburg more in line with how the Berlin festival works. A MAZE Johannesburg is still staying much much less expensive than any other SA festivals, and the festivals in Berlin. The arcade is still open without a ticket, but the ticket gets you in to all the workshops, talks, and parties. If you are only able to come for one day, you can get a single day ticket at the door too.

    @Bensonance it's just that I recall @hanli saying she would try and organize so that we didn't have to pay for parking. Hope people are ok with how flimsy UNISA student card is XD

    @dislekcia I parked right in front of the Alexander theater.

    And paying to be there doesn't really make that much of a difference. I had an all access pass to GDC, but I spent most of my time just hanging out with people and talking about games. The ability to go to talks is nice, and you can gain some interesting things from them. But in all honesty it is only a very rare and exceptional talk that will outshine actually just being with the people there.

    ---

    I know it sounds a bit like sour grapes, but AMaze kinda feels like it continually has issues that it shouldn't (like not being able to go into the opening party last year?). And yeah 350 isn't the most amount of money in the world, but we're all in different financial situations and 350 can be quite a bit for people who are struggling to make games! I can't help but look at it but being slightly weird considering how hard we've fought to keep MGSA voting membership free.

    And @Bensonance you really can't compare a festival in JHB to one in Europe. I mean if we're lucky there will be what 200 people into AMaze for talks? It kinda feels counter to what we should be doing which is growing and trying to expand. And get the word out there. In Europe and the US there are way more devs and people that would come to this kind of thing. And yeah there was a panel last year that just didn't happen because there weren't enough people attending; guess you were one of those people who wasn't attending ;)

    Which kinda leads me to that there has been a rather poor advertising / visibility for the festival. I mean I'm on the forums and twitter a ton and it's not like there has been any kind of official word about the tickets and such. Are there credit card machines or do I need to bring cash?

    ---

    And I know some people would probably try and give answer but in all honesty I think the only person who can give a suitable reply is @hanli since I'm likely to just go head desk and go err what. So I'm a chill out until the boss has time to answer ;)

    @JohanNagel,

    Unfortunately the curation of the games has already closed :).
