    Are you sure about that one? :)

  • I'm bringing attention to the GGJ showcase - Global Game Jam is happening on the 26-28 January, and we are going to have everyone to show and play each other's GGJ games and get feedback at this Feb meetup!

    It'll be the best follow-up to GGJ we can have for everyone, so please do come and engage :)

  • My slide-desk is available on slideshare.

    I also highly recommend watching this video which explains machine learning far better than I did.

  • Hi everyone!

    I'm new to the online community, but have been somewhat involved with Make Games SA for the past two years.

    I'd love the opportunity to showcase one of my recent games at the monthly meetup. It would be great to see how a broader scope of people react to it, and to hear what they think about the concept.

    Would it be possible for me to use one of the empty slots that are still available?
