Getting Started Making Games

This workshop will walk you through everything you need to think about when it comes to making a game. We will cover the following topics:

• Picking a Framework

• Game Design 101

• Creating Artwork and Sound

• Polishing Your Games

• Publishing and Marketing

While this event is geared towards people just starting out making games there is still a lot of useful content for everyone.

    The talk was definitely straight forward and easy to relate to. I'm more inspired to start a game today.

    Hey Jesse, will you be having this session again sometime soon?

    The AES convention (audio engineering) is in town and they've been hosting workshops all weekend, but if you won't be having this again anytime soon I'd like to hear what you have to present.

    Let me know, thanks!

    Is there anywhere else we need to register for the building's security personnel to have us on record in their system? Every time I get there after registering here I am told I am not in their system and haven't registered... what we have here is... failure to communicate ;D should we start writing an API that can tie Meetup and the building's system? ;P

      due to how many people register I have to rely on the tools built into the site to push out the rsvp list. So I need all the names in one place. Sorry.

      How can I make sure you get my name when I RSVP? Is it enough to use the one meetup RSVP tools? In that case you should have already got my full name at the time I RSVPd for the event, Thanks Jesse! :)
