And there is now a schedule for the TactiCon!
The program includes talks about strategy games and publishing. Among the participants will be Soren and Leyla Johnson, the former being the Civ3 and 4 lead designer, and they both worked together on Old World. Tim Bender from their publisher Hooded Horse will be participating in a talk about how to publish games. Other talks include the future of tactical games, and how to balance depth versus the decision making freedom of the players.

https://store.steampowered.com/sale/TactiCon?tab=4 there is now also a TactiCon sale going on!
60 different turn-based games are on sale, with discounts between 10 to 75%!
Most interesting games for us here are probably "Imperiums: Greek Wars", "Expeditions: Rome" and "Going Medieval", since these are history themed, but a lot more interesting games can be found there!
