A lot of us share the same goal: to turn our passion of making games into a full-time career. But the path from starting a passion project to sustaining a profitable business can be a long and twisty road, especially without guidance.
This Meetup will be a fantastic opportunity to hear from several local game developers who have successfully started a business and kept it running long enough to realize their goals! Among our speakers will be:
Matt Raithel from Graphite Lab: http://graphitelab.com/
Andrew Garrison from Jundroo: http://jundroo.com/
Ben Triola and Dana Huth from Happy Badger Studio: http://happybadgers.com/
Each will provide a 20 minute talk about their own experience creating an indie business, with approximately 10 minutes of Q&A following each. These speakers have a lot of great wisdom to share for anyone in the process of working on an indie game!
We'll also start off the evening with the demo of a short game being developed by Jonathan Leek!
