January Game Developers Meetup

  • Jan 9, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Media Design School

Here's the agenda:

6.00 Arrive and mingle

6.15 Narrative and Story Telling in Games

This month we have presentations and a panel discussion on Story in games and the once-mighty Adventure Games genre.

Story Glyphs: Delivering story whilst maintaining player freedom. Former Shortland St writer turned game writer (Path of Exile, Big Little Bang, City of Steam, 2ndCity) will discuss how to write good quests and integrate story context throughout a game.

Can we Fix Adventure Games? We look back fondly with rose-tinted glasses and nostalgia at past Adventure Games. But does point'n'click cut it in today's instant gratification and Freemium world? Stephen Knightly of InGame will kick off the panel discussion.

Global Game Jam 2013

Can you make a game in 48 hours? Sign up for the Global Game Jam on January 26-27th.

There are still some places available in the Media Design School's new Bachelor of Software Engineering (Game Programming) too.

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.

    This was my first time attending a Game Developers meetup and this month's topic was something that I was really interested in. The talks and discussion was very enlightening :)
