Cleveland Game Devs June Meetup

I could definitely see us on the Phoenix Coffee patio this month.

// Introductions // E3 announcements
// Science After Dark: June 26th at Great Lakes Science Center // Summer Game Jam Details // Games we're playing/anticipating // Updates on Members' Projects

At these monthly meetups, get together with game developers and enthusiasts in the Northeast Ohio area to discuss games, the indie scene, and the industry. All are welcome regardless of skill or knowledge; you don't have to be a programmer or an artist to join in.

Attending with recruiting as a singular goal is discouraged, but you can use the forums on Meetup for that. Members are advised to do detailed research and vetting before entering into any venture.

    Okay, I have a plan for this. I'm going to bring my virtual reality projects, one of which being my smartphone HMD (I've dubbed this Project Veronica), and my WIP Oculus Rift clone (I'm just calling this one Veronica, although I'm still not sure.) The Rift isn't field ready, and still needs lenses and a screen. Now, I know this is going to sound demanding, but I was wondering if anyone who has an Oculus Rift DK1 could bring theirs on saturday? I have wanted to try one for a while now, and it would help the development of my own version. Plus, I seriously have wanted to try one since 2012. I don't want to seem like I'm begging, and I'm not just coming to mooch off of anyone. I just seriously want to see what the hype behind the Rift is all about. Just checking in though, as I would love to go either way, I like seeing new faces, especially budding game devs!

      I also have a helmet with adjustable lenses in it, and I use a wii motion plus connected via bluetooth and Glovepie as a sort of air-mouse,which allows for simplistic head tracking of the mouse.

      So it's not too well optimized. I'm not planning on working on it anymore, but I was mainly doing it so that I could have some sort of virtual reality device. I wouldn't try it again until my hardware and software can be improved. Also, I'm sorry, but I won't be able to come this week. I have to go to school on Tuesday @ 8:00 AM. I wish I could come and see you guys, but I can't get out that day. :( Well, I hope to talk to you guys sometime, maybe next month.

    (Also, sorry for being gone for so long. I had to make some meaningful life decisions, that involved my future career, and general life style. But I won't depress anyone with the details. Point is, I love gaming ,and I can't wait to see you all at the meeting! ^_^)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
