Knoxville Game Design invites you to attend the online hangout for Sunday August 13, 2017 at 2pm Eastern Time.
This month we will be showing off the games that we developed since last time, including our experiences with recent game jams.
We will be using Google Hangouts again, which can be accessed at the following URL: https://hangouts.google.com/call/ni63jloemrd7xdto37z5mayk4uu
Be sure your microphone or webcam is working prior to the meeting. We suggest using the mic button at the bottom of the window to mute yourself when not talking to reduce the amount of background noise on the recorded podcast. Firefox no longer works with Hangouts, so please use a browser such as Internet Explorer or Chrome.

Last month’s podcast had the most listens since the podcast started in January 2016, and the video is on pace to become the most watched episode. Thanks for everyone’s support!
