Game Makers: Meetup + Oculus Rift!

Show off your game/project, talk shop, check out the Oculus Rift

So we're returning back to our original meetup shindig, except this time we'll be adding the Oculus Rift to the mix. After introductions and people presenting their awesome stuff, we'll start up 2 computers with Oculus Rifts hooked up. So if you haven't had a chance to check out the Oculus Rift you should stop by!

This meetup is about talking shop, checking out peoples projects, networking, and just hanging out. The Game Makers Meetup is all about game developers in the area meeting up in one place to exchange stories, wisdom, ideas, and to get a chance to meet new people.

My place of work (Intersect Digital) has been nice enough to offer up their workspace for the meetup. There's a bunch of parking in the back, and the space is actually pretty cool (even if it's a little bit Victorian).

If you've got something to show, we've got a 60" TV you can hook up to.

On the agenda:

  • Introductions
  • Show off projects/prototypes/proof-of-concepts/games if you've got em'.
  • Hang out, Talk shop, try out the Oculus Rift.

See ya there!

    Thanks again for the event Craig, it was cool to see that rabbit thing you had told me about in action and of course have the opportunity to try out the O-rifts, thanks for taking the time and putting all the work in to set this all up for us.

    Oculus Rift was awesome, the discussion was ok. Next time there should be more rift time.

      There are different things to present different weeks, and this week was the first one in the new space. 50/50 on presenting vs rift time might be nice. I missed the beginning, but from what I saw Craig was doing a good job presenting and such presentations help make the meet and greats inspiring and social.

      Perhaps if Craig finds time and feels so generously inclined, we can all do another work shop with more stations running on a different day, but I know there is a lot of work involved in set up and take down for so many machines.

      And what up Mark! Welcome to the game makers! I've seen this demo floating around. Definitely looks like it could be a pretty insane experience.
