GAME.minder Expo (GMX)

Updated: GMX is now a free event thanks to sponsorships!

CGD member Jeremy Handel is putting on a unique event called GMX that includes a screening of the documentary "The Story Of Mojang". There are more announcements coming soon but if you are interested in participating you can reach Jeremy at [masked].

UPDATED: Game designer Ian Schreiber, author of the book Challenges for Game Designers, was just announced as GMX's keynote speaker. Ian will be discussing rapid prototyping concepts as well as holding a hands-on workshop for attendees. This is a really amazing opportunity to meet and learn from a highly respected influence within the gaming industry.

And here is more about the event:

Games are made in California right? Or maybe in Europe or Australia? Guess again! Games are made everywhere, even right here in Ohio. If that surprises you, maybe you should stop by the inaugural GAME.minder Expo and take a look at what's been happening right in your backyard!

Starting right around lunch time, and ending late in the evening, think of GMX as one part Penny Arcade Expo mixed with one part Game Developers Conference, thrown in a pot with a splash of IndieCade and some midwestern charm.

Some things you can expect:

Demos of games
Developers showing off their works in progress
Panel discussions on game development
Presentations on art, tech and even the law
A great movie!

    Thanks everyone! final official attendance count was 136 but that only includes people who actually signed up or signed in so the real count was definitely bigger, I just don't know by how much.

    Hope everything is going great today. I wish I could have made it. I was on my way, and my wife was throwing a fit that I was going to be gone all day, and I haven't really seen her that much in a week. Maybe next time :(

    just wanted to let everyone know - we've secured additional sponsors and so we're no longer charging admission. If you already bought a ticket, you've been refunded but if you haven't, now's the time to register for free! thanks

    Just wanted to make sure everyone caught the update that Ian Schrieber is going to be the keynote speaker at GMX. Ian will also be conducting a rapid prototyping workshop for attendees as well. This is going to be a great opportunity for everyone interested in learning more about design aspects.

    Hey there folks I just wanted to reach out to all of the members of Cleveland Game Developers to tell you as part of the upcoming GMX, Mini Maker Fair and any future event I am creating a simple GUI that will sit on a machine at these events and anyone can come up, flip though all of the gorgeous games CGD has worked so hard on and then play them. This is certainly open to anything made as part of Global Game Jam or Ludum Dare. I am hoping to have everything done and tested a few days before GMX and will certainly expand the collection for future events. So I am asking that all submissions for GMX are in by March 9th. Please send me an email ([masked]) and I will send you the upload instructions as well as the requirements. Thank You!

    I want you to send me your games so I can show them off at these upcoming events. Like an arcade machine for all of the CGD. Email me for details: [masked]
