If mingling with local game developers and sitting in for some really informative discussions about game design sounds interesting, then attending tomorrow night's IGDA Phoenix meeting should certainly be a consideration.
Located at the University of Advancing Technology (UAT), the meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. Food will even be provided, for free! UAT has given the IGDA Phoenix the use of their auditorium many times in the past, and has even generously provided pizza to all the attendees. Make sure to visit the RSVP page for location information and to ensure a pizza slice, or two, will be available.
Come for the food but stay for the presentation from David Holz, director of Grindwork Corporation. According to the event website, Holz will be discussing Game Projects vs Developer Morale. Holz will be focusing his discussion on how game design decisions affect an individuals or even a studios willingness to work. His recent experience dealing with a concussion while creating his Global Game Jam submission titled, “Game Jam Adventure,” will also be heavily featured in his presentation.
IGDA Phoenix meetings are a great place to meet fellow game developers and learn a lot about the professional environment of the video game industry. To learn more about the IGDA Phoenix or the University of Advancing Technology visit their Facebook pages.
