Deconstructing Free to Play

In November we had a great meeting with Ara Shirinian.  His talk “Deconstructing Free To Play” is now available on YouTube thanks to UAT.

Stay tuned for a post regarding our January 2014 meeting coming soon!

December Demo Night!

It’s IGDA Phoenix’s final meeting of 2013!  Come show off your current projects to the crowd as we hold our December Demo Night.  So far we’ll be hearing from the following folks about whatever cool stuff they’ve been working on:

  • Kyle Pulver
  • Corey Nolan
  • Clay Walters
  • Chris Zukowski
  • John Markle
  • Michael Katic
  • Jeremy Johnston
  • Mario Delacruz
  • Matthew Maybery
  • Matthew Wegner
  • Alex & Kyle Uithoven
If you would like a spot in the schedule then please email immediately!  Space and time are both limited, and adding people to the schedule during the meeting is probably not going to happen.
Each presenter will have around 5 minutes at the projector to show off.  Afterwards we’ll be able to mingle about and chat about what we’re working on.
There might also be a special appearance of some sort of holiday treats for this meeting!
