Cleveland Game Devs : Spring Newsletter

From: Matt P.
Sent on: Sunday, April 15, 2012 12:21 PM

Hello members of the Cleveland Game Developers,

So far 2012 has really been an outstanding year for our group!

This past winter season we participated in the Global Game Jam, held member presentations on Game Maker and Unity 3D and forged relationships within Cleveland's educational (Case Western Reserve University & Cleveland Institute of Art), technical (LeanDog) and entrepreneurial (Launch House) scenes. And our spring season is on track to keep this amazing momentum going with three special events!

First, on the evening of Friday April 20th there will be a "Ludum Dare Launch" event at the Launch House in Shaker Heights. Ludum Dare is a 48->72 hour game jam where a community selected theme is announced and participants have the weekend to build a game based on it.  Details here:

Our second special event is the highly anticipated "Getting Started with Music Composition" workshop being offered on Saturday afternoon, May 19th at the the Launch House in Shaker heights. For this workshop, several of our musically inclined members will offer techniques on how anyone can approach creating music. Details here:

And our third special event is the local premiere of Indie Game: The Movie on Thursday May 24th! For this event, CGD will be partnering with the Akron Film+Pixel meetup group and the Akron Art Museum for an exclusive one night show. Indie Game : The Movie is a documentary on the creative & emotional journey taken by the creators of the games Super Meat Boy, Braid and FEZ. This documentary was featured at Sundance and SXSW to rave reviews. For more info and a trailer, please visit



Hope to see you there or at one of our other events.

Best regards,

Matt Perrin

Assistant Organizer
