February 2017: game makers

Our next meeting is almost upon us! On Wednesday February 22nd at 6:30PM we will be making our own video games.

The plan is for us to try out mob programming/blind learning: we’ll split into some groups (one laptop each) and try out a game development environment (e.g., Construct 2 (Free Edition), GameMaker Studio Free, or Unity (Personal)) from installation through to (hopefully) a working game! No prior knowledge required. 😎


The running order of the evening is as follows:

  • 6:30PM – Start
  • 6:45PM – Introductions
  • 7:00PM – Game making part 1
  • 7:45PM – Break/refreshments
  • 8:00PM – Game making part 2
  • 8:30PM – Demo/recap
  • 8:50PM – Set theme for next meeting
  • 9:00PM – End


As usual, our event is being hosted by Freerange Industries and takes place at the University of Cumbria’s Carlisle Business Interaction Centre at 4-5 Paternoster Row, Carlisle, Cumbria, CA3 8TT.

Tea, coffee, sweets and WiFi will be available.

Until then you should join us on Slack to keep the conversation going.
