It's time once again for the monthly Blockchain Gaming Meetup, a series of events hosted by www.blockchaingaming.com, the first website dedicated to blockchain-based video games. Attention to this sub-industry has soared since the involved of mainstream developers and consoles, and we're going to cover every blockchain game one by one and livestream it to our YouTube channel.

Our guest this time is Scott Dudley, yet another blockchain game developer from Seattle. Having previously been heavily involved with online Magic the Gathering, he's now working on Orbiter 8 (http://orbiter8.com/), a spacefaring MMO akin to EVE Online. Unlike other space MMOs, however, it is designed to run as much on the Ethereum blockchain as possible, using turn-based gameplay that can deal with block times.

Scott plans to present some slides to discuss his inspiration and what he's trying to accomplish, then show off an early demo on the projector screen. Audience members will be given a chance to ask questions, try the game themselves, and get some cool Orbiter 8 T-shirts and stickers to take home with them. Come join us!
