We've got some reporters on the scene at this week's big Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, but we're also trying something new: we've got a cartoonist covering the show for us.


Writer/artist Elizabeth Simins will be hanging out at GDC all week, filing comic strips each day to chronicle her adventures at the show. Today's day one of GDC, but it's a bit early on the west coast for any comic-worthy adventures. So, to kick things off we've got a day zero strip from her.

We'll be running her GDC strips all week at Kotaku to give you something of a GDC comic strip diary. You'll also be able to find them under the tag Game Developers Comics 2014.

You can find more of Simins' art, much of it about video games, at Cargo Collective. She's on Twitter @elizsimins.
