Free tickets now available for the third http://indiegamesspace.eventbrite.com event. This time we’ll put out a questionnaire at the end to get some anon feedback on what you think could change. Feedback from the previous two events in this thread also helps.
I’m thinking we might tie into the internet Ludum Dare challenge/jam which takes place the same weekend. The rules are on the website http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ if you want to genuinely enter and it’s usually a 48hr thing. But we would use the theme they release as ours. I reckon it could help give people a bigger audience for their work if they wanted.
There’s no speaker as of yet, so if anyone has a project, piece of art, game or topic they’d like to give 10 minutes on, then please reply in the thread and let us know.
For the future – theres a decision to be made about further events. Do people reckon they’d attend if we arranged for another 3 events over the summer?

Booked a ticket for myself and a friend. Looking forward to it!
As for continuing the events throughout the summer, if the demand is there, I don’t see why not. The attendance for the third event should give a pretty good indication.

Cool, looking forward to seeing you there :)
Yeah, I’m aiming to get a few more seats this time. The room seems well capable of holding more – so a full house would be good indication of interest.
On the speaker topic – looks like we might have one arranged – more details soon.

The tie in with LD sounds interesting.
I’ve done it a few times before.
The competition part is solo only, but you can work in teams for the ‘jam’- could be a lot of fun.

Hey all, hope you are enjoying the bank holiday weekend.
Still a bunch of free tickets available (13 registered so far). We usually get about 20% or so not showing – so there’s room for another 15 I reckon. If you know of anyone who might be interested or of other forums where there might be interest please let them know.

Just an early heads up – FilmBase is actually closed this Saturday it turns out. Not to worry the Indie Games Space is still on, but we’ll be using a side door to get in. This is just in case you arrive (or are reading this later) and are confused. I’ll post more details on how to gain entry :)

Ouch, poor Open Emotion Studios have been hit with a QA submission that will keep them busy all weekend, and so can’t give the talk now.
We have a few options – the best of which being if someone wants to volunteer to talk about a project or piece of work they’ve done or are doing, and of course the easier option of skipping the talk and getting straight to the jamming.

any more info on this event, namely how to enter the venue :)

Hello, entrance is as follows – side door on the corner with city discs. I’ll have it open at 12.30 and will leave a print out number on the door for you to ring if stuck/late.

Will be busy tomorrow I’m afraid, but I’m definitely down for another games jam, was at one last year and was a lot of fun, and I am proud of what we achieved in one day! ;)

Thanks for hosting the Event John.
First one like it i’ve attended and we’d great craic. I’ve posted up the semi-game we made.
It’s only half complete as we never managed to include the people, which were meant to act as your health as you collect them (these were to be represented by swarming blue dots with collision on the map like the players green dot)
had a blast and will definitely turn up at the next one. Dunno if we’ll actually try make a game or not though.

Great to see you there Gavin. Thanks for posting up your work and for you team giving a presentation on the day :)! Good to hear more on theories about the design/development process – it’s a worthy debate.
Fairly lively day overall I thought – seems to still be plenty of energy. Have to go through all the questionnaires and tally up the feedback to see what the future holds.

Just chiming in with my thanks too, was a great day, followed on with a great chat/debate in the pub afterwards :D We hope to have the game we created finished off some time this week, will post details when I have them, think Gordon said he’d host it on his site. Looking forward to the next one! Thanks for organising it!

Great event, really enjoyed the loosely defined challenge, met some really cool folk and had a great chat and debate in the pub afterwards. I am very interested in helping out organizing events if you like!
Thanks for organizing and hosting the event!

A big thanks to John for organising the event and also to filmbase for allowing us to use they’re space.
Had a brilliant time again and met some great people. The presentations were great craic. Only gutted I had to miss the pub afterwards!
@Gavin, thanks for posting up your game!
@John, I’ve sent you a pm.

the mechanics of that game are really cool! With some interesting art, it could be a hit like this game, which was the top rated Iphone app as reviewed by IGN…

Nice implementation Pete! Got eaten by some clever cul-de-sac camping crocodile.
