The second indie games space event takes place in Filmbase, Temple Bar in Dublin on the 26th of March, 12.30-5pm. Tickets are free and still available at http://indiegamesspace.eventbrite.com
The event which is aimed at, and organised by, indie developers, is providing a social and work space for indie developers to collaborate on projects of their choice.
The event is kindly supported by Filmbase who are providing a training room and facilities for the event. Filmbase is a not-for-profit resource centre for filmmakers to network, train and receive support. Gd.ie is also supporting the initiative.
How it will work
After the intros the attendees will choose a theme for a game design challenge (audience suggestions out of a hat).
Collaborations and team formations are recommended, but working solo is also fine. You can aim to finish your game before the day is out, or you can continue and enter in a monthly challenge.
The event will also include a talk by Limerick based indie company Digital Sideburns – see http://digitalsideburns.com/.
Attendees are asked to bring their own laptop, notebook, pens etc. Internet connection, desks etc. will be provided.
Attendance at the event is free and tickets were limited to approx 20 on a first come first served basis for this first event.
Tickets are now available at http://indiegamesspace.eventbrite.com
The organisers plan to hold one more event on the 30th of April.
This event is aimed at people who have some game development or related experience and can contribute either, or both, artistic and programming skills. It is not suitable for complete beginners.
