Kickstarting Your Game

We are back in downtown OKC this month and are talking crowd funding! James Simpson of GoldFire Studios will be leading a discussion focussed mainly on Kickstarter. GoldFire Studios successfully funded a new game this past February, and the presentation will draw from those experiences.

Again, we will set aside time at the end of the meeting for anyone to demonstrate what they have been working on. We will have a projector or TV available.

Special thank you to Core Financial Services for sponsoring our location.

GoldFire Studios will be sponsoring free pizza and soda this month. Come hungry and ready to talk game development!

    Now that I've graduated, I should be able to come to the next meeting. I hope it's still going strong.

    It was great seeing everyone. Does anyone have the links to the games that were shown at the end? I forgot to take them down :(

    Here's the link to Beakiez: www.beakiez.com

    Please help free the Beakies! :)
    They're trapped in bubbles. :(

    We'd love to hear your feedback - Oklahoma game developers and gamers alike!

    We thought we'd try something new this month and see how it goes: a livestream! If you are going to be unable to make it to the meeting this month, head over to http://bit.ly/okgdmay13 and we'll at least make an attempt to livestream the talk/meeting this Thursday.

    Remember though, until NASA figures out that 3D food printer, there's no free pizza through the livestream!

      Also, I'll post the links to the video and slides tomorrow for anyone that would like them or wasn't able to make it.

      Thanks! Streaming was a great option to have and something I'd love to see more of in the future. Not to mention the talk---thanks for sharing!

    Howdy all. I didn't present but I have something to share. It's a 2d space shooter game using socket.io (canvas HTML5 on the client side and node.js on the server side). You can access the github at: https://github.com/dshartnett/gravity if you're interested.

    I have a live version running at http://redclaygames.com:8080 which should be playable in the most recent versions of Firefox, Chrome, IE and last I checked, Opera. If you want to test it you should have a friend so you can shoot at each other. It's 100% javascript but it's a bit half baked since I stopped hacking at it around the end of January.

    The code isn't very well commented but should be readable enough. I''m looking for feedback and if anyone wants to fork it and do something more with it, feel free but please let me know. Hope to attend more meetings in the future.

    hey, is this for developers only, or can people come that just want to check out new games?

    May 30, 2013

    • Catherine W.

  • Chris T.

    I will be showing up barring having to work late.

    May 27, 2013

  • Dan M.

    Can't wait. I mean, literally, I can actually wait. It will be hard to wait, though.

      I can also bring my favorite light jazz compilation.
