Where are you from?

Omaha, Nebraska, land of _______.

What would you like to get out of STL Game Developers?

I'd like to meet some talented, like-minded folks. And I'd like to make a game with them.

Briefly describe your ideal videogame.

You can stop reading this at any time: focused and impassioned characterization; well-paced storytelling that isn't subservient to genre tropes/gameplay mechanics; witty, detailed art; fluid and intuitive controls (the kind that when you switch to another game you have trouble not accidentally reverting to); succulent, meaty, perfect, perhaps even counter-intuitive but always absolutely perfect music; clever manipulation of player expectations; diabolical challenges that hate the player but define the game; a team of happy, smart, well-meaning project leads; a great screenplay, and voice actors who can do it justice; well-designed menu interfaces; surprises!; humor where humor belongs, drama where drama belongs; intellect; educational worth; ghosts; lovers; cutthroats; one misunderstood little thing at the middle of it all; a sense of scale that isn't afraid of ineffable vastness (the planet Jupiter, infinity, an empty jumbo jet hangar); just a general warmth and approachability.

Why did you join this group?

I'm trying to change my life.

Cake or pie?

Trick question. The answer is donuts.


Take away all the games I've ever played, and I'd be a completely different, and worse, person. So much of my soul is made up of data and sounds and images extracted directly from Monkey Island, Earthbound, and Super Mario Bros. To name but a few.

What Dana H. is saying about this Meetup Group

Super cool batch of lovable, varied geeks. Proud to have felt like I belonged. Will return to future meet-ups.
