Tickets for the third, and possibly last, Indie Games Space, are now available for free at http://indiegamesspace.eventbrite.com event.
Attendance at the event is free and tickets were limited to approx 30 on a first come first served basis for this first event.
A Ludum Dare challenge/jam also takes place this coming weekend and this Indie Games Space will use their theme. The rules are on the website http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ if you want to genuinely enter and it’s usually a 48hr thing.
Info on the Indie Games Space
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 and discussion of theme people can form collaborations or teams, 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.
Attendees are asked to bring their own laptop, notebook, pens etc. Internet connection, desks etc. will be provided.
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.
