gamedevs.nrw presents:

The second Afterwork Edition of the gamedevs.nrw Meetups

Back in July, we wanted to try something new with our Afterwork Meetup and it was a huge success! So, for the second time and instead of our usual gamedevs.nrw Meetups which take place on a Sunday afternoon (and which will resume soonish as well), we continue with our afterwork meetups, where you can mingle in a chill atmosphere and enjoy a nice beer after a day’s work. Drinks are free!

For this, we have once again partnered up with Wacom Europe who will welcome us in their awesome Wacom Experience Center Düsseldorf located in Düsseldorf's Medienhafen.

Places are limited, RSVP now and secure your spot!

ABOUT:

The Game Developers of NRW assemble!

No matter if you are a game designer, an artist, a programmer, a business person or something in between; no matter if you are working in a big studio, running an indie outfit, are a student, a hobbyist or someone who is just about to get started with game development and is looking for advice - you are all welcome to join us at on this Thursday evening in Düsseldorf!

Meet other people, exchange thoughts and ideas, get inspiration and inspire others!

The Get-In starts at 6:30pm, the program starts at 7:00pm

The concept of our monthly meetups is simple:

• NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS:

A quick round of anything of interest what is going on in Gamedev-NRW and beyond.

• PRESENTATION SESSIONS:

A couple of micro-talks and / or project demos in front of everyone. Anything goes, as long as it is related to game development. A talk is roughly 15 minutes. If the audience is hooked, extensions are in order. We are a community and as such, our talks are community-driven, too. So if you want to contribute, get in touch with Alex and tell him what you would like to present.

• MINGLING, SHOWCASING, CHATTING, NETWORKING:

After the talks, you can stick around for mingling. Grab a free drink, have a chat. If someone brought something to show to the others, look at it. Play it. Give them feedback. And if you brought something, just set up your laptop and show it to the others. Be inspired, inspire others and just have a good time!

WHAT TO BRING:

Feel free to bring what you are working on. This community depends on exchange and inspiration! So, if you recently made a game (not matter if it is a gamejam game, a small prototype or a full-scale production), bring it along and maybe also a laptop. We have much space available for you to set up your game after our program part and showcase your game. Others will gladly give you feedback.

Artists, you should bring your portfolio, so you can show it to others! Maybe someone would like to work with you in the future.

THE PROGRAM:

We will announce the program over the coming weeks.

Since our meetups are community driven, the presentations are from the community for the community. So if you want to contribute and would like to present something, feel free to reach out to Alex (alex@gamedevs.nrw)
