Florida Game Developers Association is pleased to welcome via monthly livestream from San Franciso, Ms. Elena Nizhnik, our assigned Unity Technologies Organic Evangelism Manager.

Elena will talk to us about all things Unity and will listen to our feedback about future talks and presentations that we would like to see in South Florida (during mid-month meetups) as well as provide a forum for us to relay what projects we are working on how we can collaborate with Unity Technologies.


After Elena's livestream we will do a brief Unity scene setup scenario as an appetizer before the main course of Open Forum Gamedev Talk where we make new friends, playtest one another's games and generally have fun.

Here is the Zip file for the scene setup scenarios & four games we will be making over the next several meetups. They come from C# Game Programming Cookbook for Unity 3D and we have invited the book's author, Jeff Murray, to attend via livestream to answer our questions. Published by CRC Press in Boca Raton so we are supporting a local gamedev friendly business:


You can also come and just enjoy the atmosphere and work on your own game as a co-working space; home away from home with your Gamedev guild. We aim to provide a supportive, friendly, no-judgment zone where all opinions and personalities are welcome.

During months when Elena is not available for a livestream we will provide a replacement Unity technologies employee (current or alumni).


We have the entire facility rented from 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm but we can stay as late we want (24-hour location). Most likely we will be in the lobby by 6 pm and hang out at the bars next door after 10 pm every month.


All types of Pizza (including Vegan!) will be served, courtesy of Unity Technologies (Unity3D).


Come meet with locals just getting into video game design along with veterans in the field. We discuss and demonstrate game creation engines.

Feel free to bring any project you are working on to show off and also try other developers' games. Our end-of-month Open Forum gathering is a Great place to network and maybe find that artist or music composer you're looking for.
