Game Dev Updates - Still Need Volunteers!

Hii everyone!
Hope your second week of class is going well!

For this week (9/1) we will be meeting in the Mezzanine of the MLK library from 7:30pm to 9:00pm.

Just a reminder, we still need members to table for these dates: 9/6 (Tuesday) and 9/8 (Thursday) after 10:00am. If you table for 6 hours you will get a free T-Shirt! We will have an hours roster for you to sign up.

Also, you should be thinking about who you will be forming a group with if you haven't done so already. In addition, you will be naming your groups so try to think up something fun as a team.

Teams will also be presenting preliminary game designs this week (you will be making them on the fly) so just have an idea on what type of game you want to work on so that you can discuss with your team.

In addition, there will also be some seminars in the next coming weeks:

-MDA Primer, Concepts in game Mechanics seminar Sept 8

-Unity Dev Day seminar on the week of the 15th

Lastly, We now have Mentors on the Discord channel and they're designated in green. Feel free to ask them any questions you might have!

Hello everybody!
It's been a while, I hope you've been enjoying your summer!

Our first meeting for the Fall 2016 Semester will be on August 25th, from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. It's going to be in the Mezzanine area of the Martin Luther King Library on the first floor.

Just wanted to let you know about a few things before the semester starts:

- We have a new club Discord channel, it's similar to teamspeak and offers Voice chat and slack-like communications. It also works in an internet browser or you can download the app itself. We'd like all members to join at this link here: https://discord.gg/9zwfgFg

- There are free t-shirts for the people who originally signed up for them last year.

- Also, we need help with tabling for the club in the coming weeks. We will be giving T-Shirts to those who don't have them and choose to table for the club for a total of 6 hours in the first weeks of tabling (~1.25 hours per day). You can sign-up here: https://goo.gl/forms/vngMmQPcsk8kYrkO2

- To those who can, please attend the Teen HQ's Reopening this Saturday 8/20/2016 at 11:00am for free food and to check out where the club will be housed this semester! Show our support for our fantastic library and staff!

The deadline for the T-shirt contest has passed. However if you could send them to [email protected] before the end of this week (Sunday @ 11:59 pm), they will be included in the contest. Voting will take place next week (Monday @ 3:00 pm) and end on January 25th at 11:59 pm.

Global Game Jam is taking place from January 29th – 31st. If you are interested in participating in this free event, please PLEASE sign up here: https://goo.gl/Fqy0JL It is very important for you to sign up in order for us to determine the amount of food to buy. We also need to reserve a room to accommodate the amount of people coming. It is also very important to show general interest in actually participating in Global Game Jam on campus to see if it is worth our time. DON’T ASSUME THAT THIS GAME JAM IS GOING TO HAPPEN EVEN IF YOU DON’T SIGN UP. I also encourage everyone to participate in this Game Jam because it is truly a very fun learning experience that will get you to make a game. Don’t worry if you feel like you are not experienced enough with your coding or art, this is just a fun learning opportunity to better yourself. If anybody wants to help (I’m begging for your help), come talk to me about this. I need club support because I’m just one person.

hOI Game Dev,

For this last upcoming meeting on Thursday, we will be presenting the game that we have made for this game challenge. I understand that most of you need to focus on your final exams coming up, but it would be really cool if you could come and show off what you have. After all, it is always nice to see how far we’ve come as game developers.

The T-Shirt Design contest is coming to an end on December 4th. Send your designs to our email: [email protected] for a chance to have your design on our upcoming shirts!

Also, be aware that SJSU Game Dev will be hosting Global Game Jam from January 29th – 31st! We will notify you where the event is held later on, so keep your eyes peeled.

On another note, if you are interested in holding an officer position please come talk to me. I need help and I can’t run SJSU Game Dev. Club on my own. It would also be nice to hear how you would like to change Game Dev. Club.

Stay determined,

Game Dev Updates - ALOTTA STUFF

Hello Game Dev.,

There are a quite a bit of announcements, but please read through all of it. This upcoming Thursday we are having a SPECIAL GUEST: Angela Wu, who was able to successfully fund her game, Grimwood, on Kickstarter. So come by and learn more about her process for making the game. Also, THERE WILL BE A T-SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST from now till December 4th. So if you want to see your logo on our Game Dev. shirts next semester, participate foo and get started on those designs. A guideline/submission page will be opened up later on this week. Speaking of December 4th, THAT IS ACTUALLY GOING TO BE WHEN WE ARE PRESENTING OUR GAMES, so come and show off what you’ve been doing this month. Again, we’re keeping in mind that people were a bit busy this past month and a half due to midterms. So don’t worry and show off what you got. Also, INTERNATIONAL GAMES DAY is coming up this Saturday in the MLK Library from 11 am – 6 pm. If you are interested in helping out, come by room 219 in the MLK library on November 18th (Tomorrow) at 1:00 pm. Also, the CSU EAST BAY GAME JAM is coming up. So if you are interested please sign up here: https://goo.gl/5ha9kD. A shuttle will not be provided, but I hope that doesn’t deterrent you from trying to go. I’m also hoping to have a little GAME DAY for us on December 10th, so if you’re interested fill out this survey: https://goo.gl/XrqNsS . Lastly, I would like to CONGRADULATE Arthur, Joshua, Tamara, Elle, Matt, David, and Azura for getting 3rd place in the San Jose Innovation Challenge and winning the People’s Choice Award with their video game, Carbon Runner. That’s really tight.
