Reminders and Announcements:
Open Game Labs: The group hosts an Open Game Lab every Tuesday 5:30PM – 8PM and on the 3rd Sunday of the month 2PM – 5PM. These labs are unstructured time for anyone to come to the space, hang out and work on their game. If you are just starting out this is also a great time to come ask questions! Special note this month – no Open Game Lab on Sunday April 19th due to the game jam.
Call for Topics! If you’ve been to a meetup you know that the group is very informal and you do not need a well timed and polished presentation. A presentation can simply be discussing a topic while showing a demo on a laptop. If you are interested in presenting or have a request for a topic you would like to see covered please contact Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org
Facebook and Twitter: You can also stay up to date with members of the group on Facebook. The group is closed, so you’ll need request access and it make take a day or two to get approved. If you don’t get approved in a few days, send me an email at the address above. There is also a twitter list maintained by Levi. For info on joining the twitter list, contact Levi @gatechgrad.
All this too much to keep up with? The Knox Game Design website has a calendar!
