Upcoming Events and Opportunities – March 20th, 2016 Meetup

Next Game Design Chat Podcast Game is Crashlands

This month’s game is Crashlands (available on Steam, iOS, and Android):

Crashlands is a story-driven crafting ARPG set in an outlandish world of hidden magic and high technology. Fight and tame alien beasts, craft resources into menacing weaponry, befriend the locals, and go toe-to-chin with a world-domineering maniac.

The podcast is recorded after the regular meetup ends.  Anyone is welcome to join the discussion with the only requirement being that you have played the game.  I highly recommend taking notes while playing so you have a good set of taking points for the podcast and have less of a chance of forgetting something!

This Month’s Topic: Upcoming Events and Opportunities

This month will be a break from the normal and look at upcoming local events KDG can be a part of.  These events are to not only promote the group, but the individual developers and studios in the Knoxville area.  We’ll discuss how we’d like to participate in the events and also talk about other things the group can do to raise awareness of the indie scene here in Knoxville.

Next Ludum Dare Game Jam is April 15-18th, 2016

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!

Location and Time

The meetup will be held at the Technology Cooperative located at 13 Emory Place, Knoxville TN.  Parking is available in front of the Technology Cooperative.  We start at 2PM and open with some roundtable discussion and a Show ‘n Tell where everyone can show a bit of their in progress game, favorite tool, mechanic they love in another game, or anything they find helpful and want to share with the group.
