Thread: Upcoming Gaming Events 2014

  1. Default Upcoming Gaming Events 2014

    Hi there, all

    You know what? There's a lot of game and game developer events out there! They range from seminars to expos, LAN parties to game jams. And there's a lot out there too

    There are events indoors and outside, and a developing list of places to be your comfortable, natural, gaming self! It's great having a cave to yourself, but what's even greater is meeting people at events you love. It's fantastic for keeping motivated and in the loop, and also great just for fun!

    Events marked with a (*) have been added recently!

    Here's a list of what's coming up (subject to input, of course ), check them out and plonk them on your calendar at your leisure:

    ah, beat me to the initiative

    Good thread to have, was wondering about compiling a list of industry events and the like. I'll do a hunt around myself at some point and contribute if I find anything. Good work, Joker!

    Feel free to jump on over to the non-official Facebook group and add any. I'm pretty sure you can setup events which may make it easier to invite people and get them recognised on a site people might frequent more often

    I went to the Indie Developer's Pub Night yesterday. All I can say is if you are London, you really MUST go there! It has a lot of developers there who are developing their own games for a living, and there's a lot to learn, not to mention it was a cracking night

    Check it out on the first Monday of every month!

    P.s. new events added!

    Meetups in general will happen in various places, although being in London, most events that turn up may be near where I am. The ones listed so far are the Indie Developer's Pub Nights, which take place at The Crown in Angel, London.
