There is a new games meetup starting in the Liquor Rooms, Dublin, at 7pm on Tuesday, March 7th.
(ID REQUIRED!!! Over 18s event, and the venue were quite specific about everyone bringing ID.)
The Games Co-Op is a new, monthly, multi-discipline event that aims to bring people with different skills together to make awesome games – both digital and analog. We’re talking about bringing writers, musicians, artists, game designers and programmers together to meet new people and form new teams. At the same time, we want to provide a space for developers or students to just get eyes on their game and get good feedback from a large, mixed crowd.
Have a game you want to playtest? Bring it!
Looking for new team members? Find them here!
Just want to check out what’s going on or make new friends? You’re more than welcome!
There will be prizes for things!
This first meetup is doubling as the official(ish?) post-Global Game Jam meetup so everyone can play what was made at the Irish jam sites back in late January. As Griffith College jam site organiser, Eoin Carrol said:
“The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world’s largest game jam event taking place around the world at physical locations. It is the growth of an idea that in today’s heavily connected world, we could come together, be creative, share experiences and express ourselves in a multitude of ways using video games. The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, and it is all condensed into a 48 hour development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity. Continuing the theme of togetherness, we would like to invite you to gather once more without the 48 hour deadline and enjoy some of the wonderful games created over the weekend. Even if you did not take part this year join us to see the creations and chat about the experience.”
