Houston Game Dev

HGD NEWS: new Resources Section, Facebook Links, and 2nd meetup! | September 27, 2012


New Resources Section:

First off great job Amy on the excellent artwork and style you continue to deliver to our site!    We added a new Resources page to our website and we encourage our readers to contribute to it by adding links that you feel would benefit game developers in the comments section.  This is a chance for everyone to participate, even outside of Houston!  Share the knowledge!







Facebook Pages:

QuestLord Facebook Page

Zeboyd Games Facebook Page

Wing Whackers Facebook Page

Foolish Aggro Facebook Page

Unfortunately we don’t have the resources to cover ever single thing the local game companies might want to express, we only cover the major stories & announcements.  So therefore it is best to follow them yourselves!  The best way to do that is through their facebook pages!  Our facebook page will be coming next week, until then follow us on Twitter @HoustonGameDev

Meet Up:

Our first meetup wasn’t really announced, basically a few developers got together at a Technology Bytes’ GEEK GATHERING and therefore… Met Up!  But there were enough of us for it to feel legit and we plan on doing it again.  It is the first Friday of every month and is currently being held at KHON’s in downtown Houston.  More info can be found here http://www.facebook.com/events/318921498205122/ so, if you are going to this specifically for the Houston Game Developers, please respect that this is NOT technically our meet-up.  Most people there will not know what the heck you are talking about.  We don’t do anything formal, we just meet there. So here is the secret to hunting us out at this very casual thing:

Just send an email to contact at houstongamedev.org and we can CC you to arrange for you to find us.  – OR-  You ask for Jay who runs the Geek Gathering, then ask him if he knows any Houston Game Developers he will point you to us.

Sorry if that seems rather clandestine but that this is how we are doing it at the moment.  However it is actually perfect as we are not large and organized enough yet to have actual meetings and presentations.  But at the rate we are growing since we started with our first post, it looks like we are well on our way!  Eventually we plan on having our own meeting with presentations and discussions on topics.  At the rate we are growing since our first post it seems we are well on our way to that point.  Wouldn’t that be great?  So get involved and …

enjoy Houston Game Developing!

  1. If you guys are looking for a more permanent place to hold your meetups, give me a shout. I help organize the Houston Unity Group at START Houston.

    • Thanks for that Robert! Feel free to shoot me an email if I dont get around to it in the next week or so. Would like to know more. Also please tell as many Houston Developers as you know about us. We are always eager to showcase new Houston Developers.

    • Hey Robert, I think I signed up for one of the MeetUps for a Unity Houston group. Could be same group? I got extremely busy and never made it out. I am still using Corona to dev but I would love to come out there and check out your meeting.
