When we looked at our calendar, we realized that our next BIG Night is going to be at the same time that James Portnow will be giving a talk at IU. James is the writer for the YouTube channel Extra Credits, which discusses games and game design. So instead of meeting at our usual place, we're going to go see his talk and stick around to chat afterward. Disclaimer: We don't know James' schedule, so he may or may not be available after the talk. Hanging out will happen regardless. Hope to see you there!
Come join us as we playtest games and talk about the upcoming convention season!
This summer, the Monroe County Public Library will be participating in the National Video Game STEM Challenge. The goal of the Challenge is to foster students' STEM learning by providing motivation, outreach, mentorship, public engagement, and funding support to sustain purposeful, year-round game development both in school and out of school.
An you can't have mentorship without mentors! Over the course of the summer, MCPL will be hosting workshops and help sessions, and they need volunteers to help students make video games. All the details, including dates and contact information, can be found in this PDF. This is a great way to help out the next generation of game designers!
BIG Night has moved! From now on, we will be meeting at Cowork BTown, a shared office space on Walnut across the street from The Chocolate Moose. It's a very cool space, and we will no longer have to worry about other groups claiming our meeting space before us. Many thanks to the Cowork guys for letting us use it!
Thanks to everybody who braved the weather for last month's BIG Night!
Unfortunately, other groups were a bit faster than we were when scheduling rooms, so there were no rooms left on the third Monday! So this month we'll be meeting on the fourth Monday, in room 214. We hope to see you there!
