November Game Developers Meetup

  • Nov 7, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • Media Design School

Here's the agenda:

6.00 Arrive and mingle

6.15 From Retro Gaming to Indie Gaming Pete Baron's gaming career stretches from 8-bit Commodore 64 hits Myth and Salamander to today's online and mobile gaming.  Pete will talk about how the games industry has changed - and come full circle - including how cultural shifts and mobile have opened games up to the masses.

Making a Bible Game that Doesn't Suck How would you create a serious game that teaches the bible and Christian values without preaching or being off-putingly evangelistic?  Brook and Tim from 2nd City Studios will talk about how one Christian trust has embraced gaming, their gaming strategy, some of the game design choices, and how to balance the learning and the fun.  They'll show concept art for the allegorical fantasy world they have designed.

6.50 Noticeboard/Open Mic: Announcements about people looking for collaborators, advice or resources.

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

Please bring $10 for pizza and drinks.

Please let Stephen know if you'd like to showcase your work, or if you are seeking something so we can help you out.

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

    Really enjoyed the material presented, missed the mingle with pizza afterwards dfue to taking wrong lift and ending up stranded in lobby. Look forward to next months where hopefully I can get to meet some people and talk about the NPC AI simulation concept I have developed.
