[Event] *SA* meetup - 9 June (online)

edited in Events

So since we'll be running a password protected meetup, please sign up here to receive meetup details when we have them nailed down. (If you've signed up before, you don't have to do it again):


(The following PSA is repeated in case you weren't around last month)

Hi guys, hope everyone is safe and well.

First of all, I've spoken to the CT meetup organisers, who have decided that while social distancing is going on, we're going to combine the Jhb + CT meetups into a single online SA meetup.

Therefore, even more so than before, if you have any news to be included in the meetup around gamedev and related in South Africa, please let me know. You can get in touch with me basically anywhere, with the same handle tuism.

Then the platform: While we had a great time hanging out in Mozilla Hubs last month with people joining via desktop, phones and VR, the Hubs platform is still limited in the number of people it can connect before it starts getting glitchy (about 13). So we're going to fall back to something that allows bigger numbers. I'm looking at using a Zoom room, via a paid account (not mine). I'll release more specifics about that here when I have it.

Note the change of starting time to 17h30, because there's no more traffic in getting to places, it seems that starting earlier is preferable.

Call for content:

If you want to show anything or give any talk, let me know and we'll set it up.

- Playtest Pitchathon (if you're playtesting a game, we ask that you give a 30 second pitch to the room about what the game is, before we all break off and play things).

Bring your games and set them up inside the auditorium before and after the meetup! (No auditorium but we'll let people setup screenshare and show what they're working on)

Board game prototypes can and will be played so bring along your prototypes! (Still possible but probably really annoyingly difficult :p We can do Tabletop Simulator if you want to set that up... I've been playing a ton of Tabletop Simulator from home lately!)

If you intend to attend, please indicate so on the Facebook event (Not mandatory, so don't worry if you don't have/use Facebook): https://www.facebook.com/events/2302278640081502/
