  • Meetup: STL Game Jam Wrap-Up (play the games and discuss the lessons)

    Date: May 5, 2014
    Time: 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Location: Riot Games, 10th Floor (7777 Bonhomme, Clayton, MO 63105)
    Description: Everyone who made a game at the Spring 2014 Game Jam at Webster is invited to bring their game with them and talk about what they learned during the game creation process. After we all have a chance to talk about our experience we can hang out and play each other's games. This should be fun and laid back.

    If you couldn't make it to the Game Jam but are curious about what the jammers were able to accomplish in just 48 hours this is the best place to see some of the games that were made.


  • Game Dev Drinkup

    Date: May 8, 2014

  • Meetup: Unity3D Work Night

    Date: May 20, 2014
    Time: 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Location: Riot Games, 10th Floor (7777 Bonhomme, Clayton, MO 63105)
    Description: Calling all Unity3D developers! Having issues getting that 3d model hooked up with Mecanim events - or can't figure out how to create a bitmask for your colliders?

    Maybe you just need to block out some time to work on your game, but don't have a good excuse? Come equipped with your computer and Unity3D project to get some work done. Ask your Unity3D allies for advice or feedback. You might even find someone to collaborate with you! This is an informal event, so there won't be any presentations or planned discussions.

    For anyone interested in VR applications in Unity, this would be a good event to attend as some people are working on projects locally that involve the Oculus Rift, LEAP motion, Hydra, and even some homebrew devices.

    Note: For anyone who doesn't know, parking at this location is free provided you leave the building garage after 7:00PM.
