NYC Gaming July: Demo Night

This is the place to see the newest games being built in NYC and meet the people who built them.  Each month, we get together to watch seven demos, drink beer and eat pizza.  And we're doing it again this month at Microsoft. Join our community of game developers, designers, creatives, investors and more building across multiple platforms and genres.

This month's demos include:

Michael Christatos :: Hermit Crab in Space

Josh DeBonis :: Killer Queen

Joshua Raab :: Crystal Brawl

Christopher Hart :: Synthesis

Colin Fuller :: Mountain Nailer

Jeremy Smith :: Shape Jam

Tyson Kubota :: Falling

And Damon Branch will be giving an update on his latest game, Organic Panic!

    Last 2.5 hours to help Damon and Anatole and pledge to the Organic Panic Kickstarter!! We hit $40K, but that's really the bare minimum that they've set. Every little bit helps!

    Apologies for the repeat posts~ we assume you all understand. ;)

    Hi all! We are nearing the last days of our kickstarter! Damon started an AMA on reddit last night, and it's still going on now! Join the conversation if you're interested!

      yeah the questions are pretty full on - and Damon's going into so much detail I'm learning more about him than I have since moving to NYC.

    Just a reminder that the Organic Panic preview party is tonight (Thurs, Aug 1st) from 6-10pm at Fontana's Bar in LES.

    There'll be free pizza and t-shirts. It's gonna be FUN!! And who doesn't want fun? "I don't want fun," said no one EVER. Think on that if you're feeling lazy. ;)

    A great representation of the different avenues being explored by independent developers. Glad to see Killer Queen there, but Rainbow Jumper was the surprise hit.

    Someone should make a game that attendees need to win in order to earn the 2nd slice of pizza.

    An excellent showcase of various games with time allowed for networking and play. Just wish there was more pizza! People need to stop taking two slices. But boy was it good pizza, so I kind of understand.

    Hi all,

    Great to meet so many of you last night, and great to finally put my game in front of people.

    I'm opening the beta of Falling... shortly, and I'd love your feedback: (just click the "sign up for the beta" button)

    Thanks, and see you again soon!

    P.S. If you couldn't make the Meetup, Falling... is a 3D tilt game for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, with an emphasis on audiovisual immersion and intuitive control. Tilt to move in midair, tap the screen to speed up, and try to stay alive as you fall from the heavens down to the earth's core.

    Great demos! And always end up hanging around with everyone way longer than intended -- which is a good thing :)

    I really like how Microsoft is already set at 5 stars.

    But I like the demos and presenters more. It's a shame we only meet once a month for Demo Night.

  • Kevin h.

    I agree, Organic Panic blows me away every time I see it. Great Meetup. Great Demos.
