It’s been very busy over here, with last month’s meet being a great success thanks to the involvement of everyone there. The big winners of the evening were Ninja and a great Danish clapping game, which last I checked called the Danish Clapping Game, locally anyway. Thanks to Bernie for joining us all the way from Denmark to teach us this fun and involving game. We’ll even forgive the many sore slapped thighs in the morning.
(To add to the international flavour, I’ve just been contacted by a Canadian dev who will be in town and is keen to drop by and say hi too!)
Then there was a bit of a downer, which we’ll leave in the past, except to say thanks to the community for banding together to prove it was the exception, not the rule with their overwhelming support and generosity.
David May, lead programmer at Big Ant and play dough aficionado was amazing and paid the venue out of his own hard earned, leading the charge and ensuring others who offered to help out donated to the now funded Christmas party, which I still encourage you all to kick in (http://www NULL.pozible NULL.com NULL.au/index NULL.php/archive/index/2993/description/0/0) for if you haven’t had a chance yet (go on, be part of the solution.)
To those of you who have donated, many many thanks it should be a ripper! If we end up with too much money, then January’s bar is also looking fun – w (http://bigant NULL.com/)e’ll keep you posted on plans, particularly contributors.
And further props to the wonderful Big Ant Studios (http://bigant NULL.com/), creators of AFL Live, who have pledged $500 for what will be the third IGDAM Christmas party.
Game Jam plans are kicking along nicely and we hope to have announcements about that by the end of October.
