IGDA: Brutally Honest Feedback Night

This event will be held in Webster University's East Academic Building (545 Garden Ave), Room 102.

"Brutally Honest Feedback Night" is a great opportunity to have your fellow game developers play and provide feedback on your projects currently in-development. Bring your laptop, tablet, or hard prototype and an open mind, as attendees will play and provide constructive feedback on the progress of your game. This event is not limited to video games; if you have a board game or card game still in development, please feel free to bring it for feedback as well.

The goal of the evening is to provide an opportunity to playtest with people who know and understand game design, such that we can communicate criticism clearly and politely, but honestly.

As game developers, we NEED to be able to accept and adapt to feedback; otherwise we will never learn and grow as we continue to develop more games. We will never know why our games aren't fun, appealing, or addictive. This is a safe space to allow yourself to receive feedback from people who understand the process.

Even if you don't have a game in development, this is a great opportunity to see what's being made right now in St. Louis, as well as a way to practice providing objective, constructive feedback to other developers.

Schedule:

6-6:30 — Developer Demo Setup (Please provide your own Laptop, Tablet, or Prototype)
6:30-6:45 — Presentation on "How to Give and Receive Feedback" by Stuart Keating
6:45-9:00 — Open Demos
