Join our Discord Server! https://discord.gg/CWeDgvb

Calgary Game Developers is a group for people of all skill levels interested in creating video games. It doesn't matter whether you're a programmer, artist, sound designer, writer, or any other profession, so long as you simply enjoy making games.

We run multiple regular meetups:

• Monthly socials
• Weekly Work sessions (every Friday)
• YYC Game Critiques
• Game Jams

This meetup is run by the Calgary Game Developers Association, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and growth of the local game development scene here in Calgary.

YYC Game Critique - Subnautica: Below Zero

Weeds Cafe

This month's critique will focus on Subnautica: Below Zero, available for PC/consoles.

IMPORTANT: This event will be held in person (on the patio at Weeds), pending restrictions being lifted before it happens. However, if weather/restrictions don't allow it, it will happen online (on discord) instead. I'll update this a few days before the event.

-------------------

YYC Game Critique is like a book club for games, where each month we pick a new game that we feel will make for good discussion. Anyone can then purchase and play the game and sign up for the critique meetup where we discuss various topics about it. These can range from how the game was designed, how the game made us feel, any changes you would make, good and not-immediately-obvious decisions, and anything else you feel is important to discuss.

It's not necessary to finish lengthy games, however we recommend at least 1 hour of play as that's usually enough to experience the core of the game. The group aims to be as inclusive as possible, so we try to choose games that are at most $10 and available for PC.

This event is typically scheduled on the first Thursday of every month.
