January Meetup

  • Jan 5, 2011 · 6:45 PM
  • This location is no longer available

There has been a lot of requests that there are more show and tells. So, I'd like to encourage everyone to try to create a game, even if it is basic. Last time, we saw a couple thing, including the fruits of a chiropractor building something in Unity. Now, if a non-game developer can put something together, so can you. Show and tell isn't required homework, but we'd love to see your game-related project. HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT: (NOT OPTIONAL) Create some sort of art to go with our rock-themed game. In case you forgot, we are building a side-scroller where the player must carry a rock from the beginning to the end. You are free to create character concepts, enemies, backgrounds, obstacles, items, whatever... so long as it is art. I'm happy to report that last time, everyone that attended did their homework. This time, I'm raising the bar a bit. I want everyone to do their homework and post it on the meetup site two days before the actual meetup (so by Monday, January 3rd). Also, on Tuesday, everyone should take a look at the different art ideas that have been posted. Make any notes about what you like in what you see. 6:45-7:00 Just chill and wait for everyone to show up 7:00-7:10 Introductions 7:10-7:40 Talk about the homework and pick a working set of art assets for the rock game 7:40-7:55 Plan next steps for creating the rock game 7:55-8:10 I give my presentation to y'all 8:10-9:00 Show and Tell and Socializing

    Was probably the lamest yet, but still worthwhile. I liked the content on the talk on business of indies a whole lot, but would have preferred some visual aids. I liked the large turnout, but I would have liked more show and tell and/or audience participation. I think we're ultimately coming away with some amazing ideas for the rock game, but wish things were moving quicker (granted, this is largely my fault). I think next month, with the Game Jam (http://www.stlgamejame.com) retrospective/post mortem will be fun, and hopefully bring in some new blood.

    And, as usual, I'd love more show and tells!

    I'll be there (just signed up here), but I can't guarantee the homework (2 hours from start -driving time) but I'll try to do something if I can.

    I have something drawn for tomorrow, but I'm too lazy to post it up so I'll just bring it. Sorry!

    I'm also sorry that what I have is totally lame. :)
