Last week I went to Aalborg to do a short talk about game prototypes and Copenhagen Game Collective at their new Spilbar initiave. It was a really nice event and was held at a bar where you could buy beers and drink during the talk; it worked really well and everybody got to talk a lot. I would like to try and do something similar in Copenhagen with our IGDA Special Interest Group events. A few people have mentioned that the name IGDA Special Interest Group is "scaring" some people away because it sounds official and super structured, but that is not the idea.
The idea is that this should be a cozy meetup where we will have some talks and then grab a beer, talk to each other and network. I guess a more descriptive name could be something along the lines of IGDA bar meetup or just Game bar meetup. In the long run it could be interesting to find a bar that has the facilities that we need, but for now we will just try and buy some beer beforehand and sell them cheap at the event.IGDA Special Interest Group meeting Beta Dwarf:
Beta Dwarf is the company that started at Aalborg University Ballerup and now all moved together in a house in Karlslunde. They are working on the game Faith Of The Guardians.
They are running their company in a quite unusual way and the whole team decided to move in together and work more than full time on the project. You can read more about the project and watch their video logs here: http://betadwarf.com/
We will have different people from the team talk about their experiences with project and how it has been to move in together.
When: 19th of March 2012 at 18:00
Where: PROSA, Vester Farimagsgade 37A, 1606 KÃ¸benhavn V
If you have something to say or a prototype that you would like to show then just contact us or tell us at the event.
After the meeting we will go to http://oerstedoelbar.dk/
for a cold brew. If you can't make it for 18:00, you can still join us afterwards.
