This month's critique will focus on Gone Home, which you can get on Steam. Since spots are limited we ask that you please only RSVP if you intend on playing the game before the meetup. We also recommend bringing some notes on things you would like to discuss about the game.
Bonus games: Socrates Jones: Pro Philosopher which you can play here.
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.
Since space is limited we ask that you only RSVP if you intend on playing the game and coming to the meetup. 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.
6:30 - 7:00: mingle, eat, drink.
7:00: game discussion.

I make things
I write and design games in my spare time, and I enjoy critiquing games as much as designing them.
