Critique Circle

Put down your keyboard and grab your laptop, it's time for some show & tell! Join us for a game's critique session. Bring your game, show it off, and get feedback from other game makers.

Required:

You must bring a game. You must be able to show off your game without any additional equipment beyond that which you bring.

Format:

• 8-10: Taking turns, developers show off their games and receive feedback from the group. Each developer has up to twenty minutes in all.

Join or login to comment.

    We're all on the first floor in the corner by the coffee roaster. Look for a bunch of guys with laptops, tablets, and longer hair :-)

    I'd like to attend these, though Thursday nights at this time is my drawing group (also on capitol hill) which meets at the Raygun Lounge... It'd also be kind of interesting I think to have a critique group that focuses on just a couple or three or something volunteer's projects, though I suppose it depends on how much demand there is for that-- it might be a way to spread out the projects that the pool of people attend are working on.

      Just since there's a 'required' section I assumed the idea was that everyone who attended would have a game, but I was thinking it'd work just as well if some of the people did not. Maybe to be safe it could be required that people have a game, but not everyone has to share so that if the group wants to they can focus more intensively on just a few. I know from art critiques anyways that it's just as productive to dive deeper into what is/isn't working on someone else's project as it is to do so for your own work.

      Good feedback. Honestly not sure how the format will evolve at this point. Will keep this in mind for the next session.

    Sorry, misread the date on the event. I'll definitely join the next one after this (assuming this in a continuing thing). The only feedback I have is maybe meeting on the eastside (Bellevue/Redmond) maybe half the time?
    Thanks for organizing this!

      I may be able to help with the east side version.

      October 10, 2013

    • Alex S.

      Michael send me an email -- click button on left panel -- and let's discuss in detail. Would be delighted to have you host an event on the east side.

    Wait list? :-(. There's only 6 yeses so far ...

    October 10, 2013

    • Michael

      Agree, I'm in favor of a larger group if more people want to come, even if it means not everybody gets to show, or gets to show as long.

      October 10, 2013

    • Alex S.

      Sorry Joel for now I'm going to keep it small. My thinking is we will hold this event each week and so you will always have a chance to attend the next session. I'm open to changing the format based on feedback and how things go. For now, keep an eye out for the next session in a week :-)

      October 10, 2013

  • Alex S.

    I'd like to hold this every other week but want to gauge interest and test location before setting it up permanently. So sign up, show up, and let me know what you think!
