PowerUP STL! April 26, 2011

Posted by Jesse in : Game Development , add a comment

Last night I attended the inaugural PowerUP STL event. It was a lot of fun.

I brought a laptop with Being, Bluebones’ Curse, and Hero In Training, and got lots of feedback as people came by to check them out. It’s really cool to see people play the games, and find out first hand what they liked or disliked. I need more of these sessions for future games.

There were two big announcements made last night.

  1. The St. Louis game development website has officially relaunched. If you’re in the area, you should check it and get involved.
  2. The next St. Louis game jam is happening July 8-10 at the Simutronics offices. (They were big sponsors of the STL Global Game Jam, so it’s doubly awesome that they’re hosting this.) It was announced that registration is live on the site, so you can go sign up if you’d like to attend. (And you should!)
