HACKATHON

The Hackathon is just a week away and it seems there will even be some angel investors their doing some judging :-) For those interested in not only games but the startup culture in general id highly recommend you attend! You will get a to meet a lot of really cool people, form some awesome future teams and get to hack away for an entire weekend! Who knows what you will make :-D

This is a payed event, but if you want a discount let me know! It's really not that much... And it's all going to a good cause! So come on and help make Sacramento the next Silicon Valley!

 

Sac Jam #05

This is the fifth game jam and just like the others I am sure it's going to be pretty darn awesome!!! It's at 5th Planet Games again, really great place to jam at! And if nothing else they have free candy and drinks, haha. A theme for the Jam still needs to be picked so please suggest ideas for one by going here. Remember you have 6 hours to hack away and prototype an awesome game :-)

 

Sac Jam #04 results

I finally posted the results of the last jam here... The biggest issue I keep having with the jams is collecting up all of games for everyone to play after, I will have a much better solution next jam!

 

Youtube Channel

So at the meetups I always like to record a lot of video and take tons of pictures... So it just made sense to setup a Youtube channel :-) Make sure to check it out to see video footage I took with my camera (sorry about the quality).

 

Unity

The Unity Sponsored meetup went so well, it really wouldn't have been possible without out Mark Marrison! I want everyone to make sure they say thanks to him for helping set up that awesome event! And of course to say huge thanks to Jagbir Mavi for letting me host the gatherings at the Art institute. We hope to have many more cool gatherings working with Unity in the future!

 

Devin Becker is the co-organizer

Just for those who were not aware he is the co-orgainzer of the site as well, and a super duper smart game designer. He is working at 5th Planet Games and really knows his stuff. If anyone ever has any questions about game design, just meetup ideas or issues don't be afraid to contact him as well :-)

 

The Game Developers Radio

This is a podcast I do with Devin Becker about game design, many of you have asked about it and even more have asked when new episodes are coming... Soon, very soon. So if you want to learn more about game design and listen to cool interviews I have done with people from the game industry recommend taking a listen!

 

Well that's it folks, lots more exciting stuff coming down the pipe! So make sure to check back on the site often :-)
