On behalf of GameDevLou AND TwoScoopGames, I am extremely proud of Eric, he did a great job and looked confident and kept the crowd engaged the whole time.
I wish I could have made it out to see his talk in person. But what is the next best thing?
Full video and slides!

Here is our experiece of the awesome Ohio Game Developer Expo we just attended!
Hey everyone! Ohio Game Developer Expo (#ogde2014) was a great weekend, I am really glad to have been able to make it.
We had a huge Louisville presence there with 6 Game Dev Lou attendees!
(Game Dev Lou is Louisville Kentuckys Indie Game Dev Community)
Someone even mentioned “there are a lot of you here!” when we said we were from Louisville.
Other #GameDevKY peeps were there too, like John, Lori, and Leonard from Super Soul / Power On Games / Run Jump Dev who were showing off Super Soul’s new game Speakeasy
at their booth.
I also spotted Zon (creator of Contested Space) from Bloomington’s bignight who we met at Sigma Play back in may, and again at Free Range Arcade.
We also discovered a really good breakfast place called Super Chef’s, I would recommend it if you are ever in the Columbus Area!
The thing I enjoyed most was meeting lots of regional indies and seeing what they are working on.
Below is a a huge group of vine videos Eric and I took while trying out the games.
Begin the Vinepocalypse!

Enjoy and let me know if you have photos you would like to add, I can give you access to the flickr account to upload them.
The latest game from us here at Two Scoop Games is SyRUSH, which we have deemed “the official waffle simulator of breakfast,” is out now and available in the iOS App Store. Feel the rush in this fast-paced arcade style game where you tap waffle squares to fill your waffle with the perfect distribution of mouth-watering toppings. Full version of the game includes 7 unique toppings.
This is our first leap into Apple’s GameCenter, which means SyRUSH has online leaderbords to compete with waffle afficianados across the globe, and fun achievements to unlock.
The game is free to try, and 99 cents to purchase the full game(via in-app-purchase).
Check it out here, and download it for iOS: http://twoscoopgames.com/syrush
Our next game is Pig Eat Ball.
“Help Bow win back her freedom! King Cake has decreed whomever can win his contest will marry his daughter! –But SHE has other ideas!
As Princess Bow, take back your fate by winning the contest yourself!”
The contest involves solving puzzlish-action levels like eating all the balls in a given level. It’s tricky though because as you eat in this game, you get bigger! Eat too much and you’ll get stuck. Now it’s time to barf to squeeze through!
There will be hundreds of levels in the final game, with lots of level goals besides just eating balls. Things like dodging asteroids, breaking crates, building sammiches, racing, eating ice cream, and more!
There’s also a 4-player party mode, and a robust level editor for building your own levels.
Check out more info on our Steam Greenlight page and please VOTE for it. Every vote really helps. Thank you!
The game is made by Southern Indiana developer Mommy’s Best Games: http://www.MommysBestGames.com

We will have a PC running Ubuntu for members to put their games on, let’s try to get all games on the machine around the time of the next meeting, and get then working with the game controller (USB NES game pad)
