Designing an Android Game Meetup
Special announcement this month, the Knoxville Coding Dojo Meetup is holding an Android gamedev with Android Studio 6PM Tuesday May 3rd. For more information, please visit and sign up on the Knoxville Coding Dojo Event Page.
Next Game Design Chat Podcast Game is Axiom Verge
This month’s game is Axiom Verge (available from the website, Steam, and Playstation 4 / Vita):
A failed scientist dies in an accident, only to awaken in a mysterious, alien world.
Where is he? How did he get here? And why do the fundamental laws of reality appear broken?
Life. Afterlife. Real. Virtual. Dream. Nightmare. It’s a thin line.
It’s Axiom Verge.
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: Game Jam Results
Several members of the group entered games in the April game jam and will share the behind the scene tales of each. The entries below may not be the full list, so if I missed your game please send me an email and let me know. Also, if you have any in progress game or maybe you didn’t finish the jam please feel welcome to join us in sharing!
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.
