Let's make a retro game in 30 Minutes! (in PICO-8)
- Learn game design from someone who's never done profession game design!
- Learn the basics of basic Lua! (programming language)
- Learn the basics of Entity/Component/System framework for games!
- Watch a pictionary flunky draw horrible pixel art!
- Watch a former middle school drummer compose music!
- Play real games while ignoring the guest speaker!
- Donate thousands of dollars for the inevitable kickstarter failure!
- Leave the talk knowing your kid could do a better job! (And learning how to get them setup to do so!)
* After every meetup, we head over to the Oly Taproom for an hour of social time.
