Yesterday we took a field trip to Lexington’s Awesome Inc for RunJumpDev‘s monthly meeting. We had dinner with some of the RunJumpDev members before the meeting and heard about their projects, like All Messed Up Games‘ literally on-rails shooter Railgun Express, and Leonard Wedderburn‘s mobile game T.H.E. N.A.F.

Michael Hartman of FrogDice spoke about his experience getting a game through the Greenlight process onto Steam. We learned a lot, and now getting onto Steam no longer seems out-of-reach impossible.

This Wed, 06-25-14 several of us from Game Dev Lou will be piling into a couple cars and heading down to Lexington, KY to visit Run Jump Dev for their monthly meeting.
Run Jump Dev is a game development community started in 2011, and we have met several of the members now online through game jams, at their booth at the Louisville Arcade Expo, and the recent Sigma Play game development conference in Bloomington, IN last month.
Wednesday, Michael Hartman from FrogDice will be talking about getting games on Steam. This is a great opportunity to learn from other developers who are traveling the same road we are on, but are further down the line. Especially for me, since getting a game on steam is a on my list of long-term goals for my game dev career.
I am looking forward to meeting more of the Run Jump Dev crew, and building the relationship with other great local indie dev communities. I hope to see you there!
If you would like to join us, the meeting is at 7pm at Awesome Inc.
We have a carpool leaving from the Kroger parking lot at 12611 Taylorsville Rd at 4:20pm. We’re meeting some of the RunJumpDev people for dinner at The Grey Goose at 5:30pm. Everyone is invited, and it’s also fine if you can’t make dinner and want to drive separate to the meeting at 7pm.
We have a discussion thread going on the google group, and that is the best place to coordinate if you want to join us.
