Titles for mobile devices, the web, and other new platforms are a growing part of the game industry. They feature smaller teams, faster dev cycles, iterative design, and innovative business models. This approach is more conducive to experimentation than most AAA games for console and PC.
Yet, Austin seems to be lagging behind other cities in embracing this trend. This Meetup group is designed to help change that. We welcome any current or aspiring contributors to the Austin mobile/web game community, including coders, designers, artists, producers, entrepreneurs, and investors.
This group's events will focus on the nuts and bolts of building games for new platforms. It will feature talks by professional and hobbyist developers that are heavy on useful takeaways in areas like engineering, game design, art, production, promoting your title, and more.
