Game Design Dojo

  • May 6, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Regular meetup for Game Designers - always on the first monday each month. We'll pick one advanced design topic for each meeting and discuss it in the group (talks / slides are very welcome). After that we'll hang out, share a few drinks and have a good time.

Topic for the first meeting: The MDA model (mechanics, dynamics, aesthetics) and how to use it in day-to-day design life. You might want to read this: http://www.cs.northwestern.edu/~hunicke/MDA.pdfYou might want to watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uepAJ-rqJKA.

    Thanks everybody for showing up for the great discussion. Here's what we agreed upon to improve for the next meeting:
    1.) Try out 90 minutes of discussion instead of just an hour.
    2.) Have drinks in the room and maybe open the windows. =D
    3.) Register on Meetup - only 6 of the 12 attendees did that beforehand.
    4.) Stick with the discussion setup for now. Maybe try some workshops or game discussions further down the road.

    Looking forward to seeing you next month!

    Take the stairs from the Werk 1 entrance to the upmost floor. We've got our own private entrance, disregard the first Werk 1 door on the 2nd floor.

    Looks like we're well stocked with food and drinks as there is another event at the Werk 1 tonight at the same time. We'll keep our discussion to about 60 to 90 minutes and then we'll occupy their buffet. =D

    Oh and by the way: We're most likely going to start our talks in English - if everybody's cool with that - to include non-German-speakers as well. =D

    Gleichzeitig findet im Werk 1 auch ein eher politisches Event zum Thema Standortpolitik statt. Lasst euch davon nicht ablenken und folgt der Wendeltreppe nach oben.

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.
