January 2014 Meetup

Library - first door on the right, before the vending machine room.

1:00 - Meeting starts:

Location - Schertz Public Library
798 Schertz Parkway
Schertz, TX 78154


1.) Attendance / Intros

2.) New member Phill will be giving a presentation on the history of music and games.  The presentation begins in ancient Greece and moves forward.  It sounds absolutely fascinating to me - I'm looking forward to it.  I might like to record it and post it on the site here, perhaps in the 'files' section, if it comes out well.

3.) Johnny will be giving a presentation to serve as an introduction to 3-D modeling.

4.) Phill is taking part in a game jam in Austin near the end of January.  We will assemble a team of members that are interested in participating in this event with him and work on pitching possible contest entry ideas, assigning team member roles and possibly working out what frameworks or tools will be used in the production.

5.) Open discussion

    Some of our best presentations ever, and a solid attendance number comprised of serious members. My thanks to those who prepared presentations. Every member present makes this group what it is.

    I have also received confirmation from Phill, regarding his presentation.
    I am glad to hear this, because ...well, it just sounds very interesting to me.

    I've sent out some confirmation emails regarding the planned presentations for this meeting. I haven't heard from Phill yet, but it's only been about a day.
    Johnny has confirmed his presentation, and had the following to say about it:

    "looking forward to it. I have a small intro lecture prepared. I'll be using luxology modo for the demo. I'll talk about principals and procedures that should be useful towards any 3d software. I'll try also to do some modeling live for the group."

    I'm looking forward to it.

    The 2014 Global Game Jam ( takes place January 24-26 at locations all over the world, with many being held in Texas.

    There are three locations listed for Austin:

    Skillpoint Alliance:


    Central Texas Game Jam:

    I am registered to attend at the IGDA event, there are still many spots available. Registration is free and gets you access to the hacking/jam space which has wifi, other game makers and food/drinks.

    At the next meeting I'd like to brainstorm on ideas for games that are feasible enough for a team of us to complete at the game jam. If anyone has any ideas or wants to help out, please let me know. I have some basic ideas and am willing to contribute in as many ways as I can: designing, programming, music/audio...
