April Meetup - Kickoff event featuring Minicore Studios

Our first event will feature a conversation with several key team members from Minicore Studios, an Austin indie responsible for the recent titles "Tumblewords" for iOS and "Tanks for the Memories" on Android. As a relatively new game studio, Minicore has learned many valuable lessons over the last several years. We'll hear about specific challenges they faced and key insights they gained in the process of building and releasing their games.


We'll also use this kickoff event as an opportunity to gather input from the attendees about the format and approach of future meetups. And afterwards, we'll provide an opportunity to socialize with other group members either at Capital Factory or at a nearby bar (TBD). We look forward to meeting all of you at this event!

    Really good format. Questions from Todd covered many aspects of mobile game dev. One nit-pick would be to hold the main panel & subsequent Q&A to 1 hour.

      Thanks for the feedback! We originally wanted to keep it to an hour, but the answers ran a little long. I'll try harder next time to keep things moving!

    I really enjoyed this and learned a lot. I didn't have time to stay and meet everyone afterwards, but hopefully I'll have another chance at future meetups.

    Hey I don't want to hijack this from the organizers but if there's anything the audience really wants us to cover in terms of challenges we had (have) in the realm of mobile game development, please mention them here!
