Braamfontein Student Game Developer Meet-Up - 18 April 2017

It's time for another Student Meet Up, and everyone is welcome! This month we have an OFF THE HOOK LINEUP with Andrea Pinto Hayes talking about writing for games, so all you writers come on through. Steven Tu will hit us up with some sweet speech about Game Jamming - arguably every game designer's most valuable practice.

IMPORTANT: We will not be at the DIZ this month. Please see below for our new location, and directions.

While these meets are aimed at including the Johannesburg student developer community, the greater dev community are certainly not excluded. All are welcome!

WHEN: 17:30 - 21:00
WHERE: Digital Arts Building, Wits University
DIRECTIONS: Parking for visitors will be available right outside the building, after entering the university on Station Rd

We cannot stress enough the importance of playtesting your game as part of the development process, so please bring games, prototypes, or just *things* for other people to test and give you feedback on. Also, it doesn't hurt to come prepared with a few questionnaires for people to fill out after testing your game. It's best to have questions specific to your games but here are a few example sheets which you can download and print out if you don't have time to make your own.
Try this, this, or this
