  • Demoing Games/Prioritizing Work as a Small Team
    Demoing Games Beginner to mid level Tutorial By Rob Santos Demoing for both feedback and marketing is one of the most important elements to making a great game, and with Pixel Pop and many other cons and demo events coming up, there are plenty of opportunities to demo whatever game you're working on. Spend an evening learning how, why, and what to demo to get the most out of each and every player. Value is a Spectrum - Prioritizing work as a small team Beginner to mid level Process Talk By Wes Ehrlichman Deciding whether or not to add something to a game or other software project sounds easy. However, if you've worked on anything of any substantial scope you learn early on that it's not, and it's only made harder with more people involved. Explore why this might be, and learn some practical and simple ways to decide what to work on next (and whether or not to work on something at all). ---------------------------------------------- Parking Information Riot's parking vendor installed a new 24/7 gate in the parking garage, and while they will be able to validate visitor parking we also recommend the following options: - The Sheraton lot across the street (lifts their gates at 7:00 p.m. and is free after that time) - Meter parking (free after 5:00 p.m) ---------------------------------------------- The St. Louis Game Developer Co-op is dedicated to a harassment-free event experience for everyone.
