June Game Developers Meetup

We're back downstairs in the Level 5 lecture theater this month.

Here's the agenda:

6.00 Arrive and mingle

6.15 Presentations: MDS Rapid Game Prototypes

Three teams of Media Design School game development students have been working on Rapid Game Prototypes.  What can they create with only programmers and no artists, and what have they learnt about various middleware tools?

Hocus Pocus: A multiplayer battle using various spells in a shrinking arena, written in Unity.

Off Da Railz. A multiplayer destruction derby with trains, written in Unity.

XCIX. A first person atmospheric horror game, written in Unreal Development Kit.

6.50 NZ GDC Conference Update

NZ GDC will be on Friday 28 June at AUT University. Get the latest update on speakers and parties, or buy your tickets now at http://nzgdc13.eventbrite.co.nz/

7.00 Noticeboard/Open Mic: Announcements about people looking for collaborators, advice or resources. Please let Stephen know if you'd like to showcase your work, or if you are seeking something so we can help you out.

7.10 Pizza, networking, group discussions then eventually the Bluestone Room pub.

Please bring $10 for pizza and drinks.

If you are lost, call Stephen on[masked] 125.
