• Ludum Dare 38 Kickoff

    Needs a location

    WELCOME TO THE FIRST CLE GAME CO-OP JAM OF 2017! This is a great opportunity to both get back involved with the group and the community as well as warm up for our SUPER SPECIAL AWESOME Health Game Jam in May! Personally, I'd love to see all the old faces that haven't been around very much join back in with the enthusiasm they once shared! =) Ludum Dare is a combo competition + jam game jam. It includes a 48hr game competition (solo devs only, w rules n stuff) & a more relaxed 72 hr jam (open to teams). And, has been running ~3 times a year since 2002. It's probably the single best known game jam (yes, inc GGJ). I even heard Notch jammed last time. Ludum Dare 38 jam kicks off 4/21 @ 9PM and runs 72 hrs to Monday night at 9PM. In LD31, our team took 3rd in Audio and #214 overall. This meet will be to kickoff the jam by accessing skills, assigning roles, getting the theme announcement, brainstorming ideas, picking one (or two if we have enough people) and getting down to work. After Friday night, we'll break and work remotely for the rest of the jam. We'll stay in touch over IRC and/or Skype etc as needed. However, you will still be expected to work on your role/part for the remainder of the weekend. Submissions aren't due until Monday night, but we'll try to finish everything on Sunday so that we only have packaging, submitting etc for Monday (since most of us have to go back to work on Monday). Ludum Dare Details: http://ludumdare.com/compo/ The LD31 Kickoff took place at The Side Quest bar in Lakewood, which worked really well (the guys at Side Quest were great). But, location is still TBD.

  • CLE Game Co-Op Social Meet & Share

    Market Garden Brewery

    CLE Game Co-Op Social Meet & Share Market Garden Brewery Ohio City (Either front high top tables or the back bar) 1947 W 25th St Cleveland, OH 44113 Event Details These social meetups allow us to check-in, share progress, ask for help, motivate and support each other's projects and just talk with awesome people doing a lot of the same thing. Existing teams meetup to talk shop, others look to form teams, and other still just meetup to stay in touch and enjoy a few pints. So far, these have been an absolute blast. And for those looking to get some feedback on their projects, we usually have a monitor & laptop setup to be able to show off any works (requires advanced coordination with Keith). Just like last time, we'll open with a public/open meet & greet (& drink & eat & talk etc etc) to introduce newcomers, identify the existing Active Co-Opers and introduce any newcomers interested in joining the Active group. For the second half, we'll get down to business and talk shop about any existing projects, and, for the collab-ers, brainstorm new ideas/flush out existing ones. Regardless of your interest level, the Social Meet & Greet's are open all game developers, artists, musicians, supporters, volunteers, helpers including, but not limited to, waffle and/or bacon makers. Stop by, have a drink & introduce yourself! Can't wait to see all of you there! Keith What's a CLE Game Co-Op Social Meet & Greet like? At these events, we're just looking to get as many CLE-based devs, artists & musicians interested in making & publishing CLE-made games together to meet & get to know each other, their work, active projects, skills, experience etc. For those looking to collab on new projects, we'll introduce you to others with complementary skills to form teams and help those teams get started on new game ideas, etc. For those already on existing projects, you'll have a chance to meet everyone else in the CLE games community to see what they're up to and pick their collective brains and learn from the past experience of those who have already successfully (or unsuccessfully) published games. If you're a newb and are looking to get started in game dev in CLE, we'll help you form similar level teams and help you get started on the right path to finishing your first game. Just excited about the momentum we've built for game dev in CLE? Want to help in a non-dev/art/collab way? We need your help! Come by and meet everyone! The most valuable feedback in games comes from getting it in the hands of players AT EVERY STEP OF THE PROJECT. In the coming months, we'll be hosting Playtest Events where we'll need as many player's hands on deck as possible! PLEASE Stop by a Social Meet & Greet event and sign up as a playtester! Are you a journalist, marketer or community leader? Stop by and introduce yourself. We have some incredible momentum building already, and will have a lot to share in the coming months! Thanks for all of the support and enthusiasm, everyone! This is getting really EXCITING! CLE Game Co-Op Purpose To build a CLE game dev community focused on publishing CLE-made games by collaborating, coordinating, motivating and supporting CLE game devs through every step of the game development & publishing process.

    The Elevator Brewery & Draught Haus

    The Elevator Brewery and Draught Haus 161 N High St, Columbus, OH 43215 (Note: NOT the taproom on N 4th) http://www.elevatorbrewing.com https://www.yelp.com/biz/the-elevator-brewery-and-draught-haus-columbus Before we kickoff the official weekend of GDEx 2016, meet up with other CLE Exhibitors, Supports, Volunteers & Fans for drinks and appetizers at local Columbus institution, Elevator Brewery & Draught Haus (just blocks from the Doubletree hotel). This is a CLE only event! (Although, others are welcome.) It's so rare that all of us are within a few blocks of each other for an extended period, touch base, introduce yourself and share a pint with fellow CLE game devs, artists and musicians! Light fare provided by the #GamesInCLE Megabooth and Playvue Games. Let's get ready to unleash CLE awesomeness all up on GDEx. The official GDEx kickoff party starts at 7PM, so expect mutliple Uber opportunities from Elevator directly to Land Grant (which is near COSI).
