HDDG 29: Game Night!
Enjoy excellent yummy food and beverages while listening to talks by these game designing engineers.
Richard Hogben - Mixed Reality Smartphone Game
Adelle Lin - Multiplayer Games in Public Spaces
HDDG is excited to host Adelle Lin this month. Adelle Lin (http://touchtech.io/ http://adelleninja.com/) recently moved to San Francisco from New York and is an engineer at Intel. A lover of indie-games, she started building hardware so that she could create games that connect people in space. She has worked on projects shown at Paris Fashion Week, Play NYC, Come Out and Play, PlayTimesSquare, AR World Expo, Burning Man, and Maker Faire.
Developing games for public spaces is challenging and even more so when you introduce hardware components. Adelle will talk through various options to consider through the lens of games that she built for PlayTimesSquare (Symphonic Picnic) and PlayNYC (Star Catcher VR) - networking, hardware specs, interfaces, installation.
We are equally excited to welcome Richard Hogben (https://hackaday.io/rich ). Richard Hogben lives in San Francisco and works as a front end engineer at Supplyframe. His previous projects include a flying Hasselblad medium format film camera. Richard is currently organizing a project on Hackaday.io to build and assemble an Open NSynth Super synthesizer.
At HDDG, Rich will talk about a recent game that he designed and presented at the Hackaday Superconference. The game is called Pinned, and it is a mixed reality smartphone game with Unreal Engine and SteamVR room scale tracking.
After the talks, there will be demos, community announcements, and socializing. If you'd like to give a 2 minute demo/ community announcement, please see the organizers when you arrive to get set up.
A community announcement includes looking for a project partner, a job, offering a project/ job, the announcement of your startup launch, your Crowdfunding pitch, etc.
We're looking forward to seeing you Thursday, April 26th, at 6:30p!
~Sophi, Matt, and Alek
