My, how time flies. Has it really been that long since our last meeting? Well, let’s get to it, then: it’s time to find out what everyone has been up to, hear the hard-won lessons of developers who’ve recently released games, and learn about a neat new framework one of us has been developing!
- Post-mortems! Specifically, of Polymer from Whitaker Trebella and Organ Trail from The Men Who Wear Many Hats. EDIT: Lunar Giant will be joining us as well to post-mortem Mega Ran!
- Framework! Specifically, the StarlingPunk framework developed by our own Andy Saia for hardware-accelerated 2D games.
- Open mic! Get up and show off your newest project (or, alternatively, show off new progress on an old project).
- Also, Phil Tibitoski and Jake Elliot will talk about ChiDevDate, an ultralight matchmaking service for local developers to give each other feedback about projects.
The meeting begins at 1 PM and will last until 4:30 PM, but we’ll also be mingling and networking after the meeting, as per usual. To show off a game, make sure you bring your laptop. The meeting is at 243 S. Wabash on the 9th floor; RSVP on Facebook. We’ll see you there!
