All majors are welcomed to visit, learn, and work together. Whether you are interested in programming, music, art, or design as it relates to games, this is the place to find others who share these passions!
Our goal is to strengthen your skills and contacts in the process of making games. You can meet people of varying experience levels with which to collaborate. We have regular weekly meetings for various discussions and activities. We also help organize other events and alert our members to opportunities both within and outside of the school.
Our meetings follow a monthly format as follows:
- Firstly we have a roundtable discussion where we discuss a specific topic that will be our focus for that month.
- The next meeting is an improv challenge that will get your mind working on the topic and give everyone a chance to make something rough and quick.
- The following meeting is a "Session", where we go hands-on to learn new game design skills, especially those that aren't covered in classes.
- Lastly we have a showcase where everyone gets a chance to show off what they made to everyone.
This format lets you have continuity between meetings and focus our attention on a variety of interesting topics.
The meetings are every Thursday from 5 - 6 pm on the Marietta campus. On the third Thursday of every month, we meet in the game lab, J202. All other meetings are in H200 unless noted otherwise.
Most of the club's communications happen through our public Discord server, which you can join here: https://discordapp.com/invite/Dksz5rc
