Braamfontein Student Community Meet-Up - 19 September 2017

edited in Events
It's time for another Student Meet Up, and everyone is welcome! This month, we'll all be dealing with post-AMAZE depression, so come through to get the stuff you need to ease you back into the standard routine: MORE GAME-RELATED TALKS!

We're gonna have a really cool range of student speakers for you. @PartyPanda is going to give us a report back on her time at Gamescom, and the valuable lessons she learnt. Dominique Whittaker will tell us about her health game, Asha. And we'll be getting an asset creation crash-course from Khadija Petlele.

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

WHEN: 19 September, 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 Road

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
