March meetup moved to the 20th
Due to scheduling next month, the meetup has been pushed back a week to March 20th, 2016. The time and place are the same, 2-5PM at the Technology Cooperative.
There is no set topic yet for the March meetup so if have something you would like to present or a discussion you would like to lead, please let me know!
The March podcast recording will also be moved to the 20th and take place after the meetup. Speaking of the podcast…
Game Design Chat now available on iTunes!
The podcast has been accepted by Apple and is now listed in iTunes. You can find the podcast by searching for “Knoxville Game” or go directly to the show using this link. Of course you can still find links to all the shows at knoxgamedesign.org/category/podcast and download the MP3, subscribe to the direct feed, or watch it on YouTube.
The podcast is an indirect way to spread the word about the Knoxville Game Design Meetup, and we can use your help in doing so. Mentioning the podcast on social media is always great and if you listen to the show please consider leaving a rating. Ratings on iTunes are one of the biggest drivers of getting new listeners to discover a podcast. (Please leave an honest review, it does no one any good otherwise – I’m not asking for 5 stars unless you feel we deserve it!)
If you wish to join us on an episode, the only requirements are you play the selected game (March’s title is Crashlands available on Steam, iOS, and Android) and you show up for the recording which takes place after the meetup. I highly recommend taking some notes while playing so you can organize your thoughts for the show and reduce the chance you forget to mention something.
Ludum Dare is approaching…
Last, the next Ludum Dare is April 15-18th, 2016. We will again meet Friday night at 7PM for the kick off and the theme announcement at 9PM. More details to come, but now is the time to mark the date on your calendar if you plan on joining in the fun!
