End-of-Semester Updates

Hello everyone!

Shirts are now available to anyone who wants one, so if you forgot to reserve one, now’s your chance! They’re $10, and we have all sizes in limited quantities.

If you’re working in a project group and aren’t in your private Discord channel yet, make sure to message an admin so we can set you up.

Our last meeting of the semester is December 6th, and our first meeting of next semester is January 10th. Keep in mind that our meetings will be at a different time (7:30-9:30) and place (the Union) in 2018. If you want to invite a speaker to a meeting or give your own presentation next semester, message an admin on Discord and we can help you schedule it.

Good luck finishing up the semester!

GCC T-Shirts

You can now order GCC T-shirts again! The current design, introduced last semester, consists of this logo on a grey shirt. You might have noticed either me or Jun (or perhaps others) looking quite sexy with them on. If you want one (or many), for yourself, fill out this form right here.

The shirts are $6 each. Filling out the form will reserve one of the shirts for you to be sold at the next meeting. If you are not able to attend that meeting, your reservation will still be valid unless we run out of a particular size of shirt and/or you fail to claim the shirt for many weeks.

GCC Screenshot Saturday

EDIT: Since this is still the first post, I’ll go ahead and use this space for the first Screenshot Saturday. For the first round, there’s only one screenshot, but hopefully others will join us soon enough. This screeenshot is from Jack’s Run, a platformer from myself, my brother, and others to be released perhaps around the middle of the year. This is the only screenshot available right now (and may be for some time) as the engine is currently undergoing a rewrite.

Jack's Run

———————————-

One thing you may have noticed if you follow a lot of game developers on Twitter (like we do) is that one of the things indies do is Screenshot Saturday, where devs post the latest screenshot(s) of their in-progress games or tech demos. Sound interesting? To participate, post up a screenshot of your game in relevant topic in the new forums and we’ll share it both here on the main page and on Twitter on the next Saturday. So remember, get some screenshots ready of your in-progress games, no matter how far along they are.

Meeting plans for the rest of the semester

After this past Tuesday, the rest of the semester is pretty much set.

11-13-12- Discussion topics and HTML Tetris part 2 (as is standard for me, the end of Part 1 has been put in the tutorials section so you can pick up and start next meeting without having gone through Part 1).
11-20-12- No meeting! However, Election Nominations will start.
11-27-12- Discussion topics and HTML Tetris Part 3. Also, last day for GCC Points. Prizes will be handed out if the winners are there. Also also, Elections will start if there are contests for any position.
12-1-12 – GCC Steam Greenlight Fantasy League Contest winner declared
12-4-12- Election winners formally declared. Also, GCC Points prizes awarded (if applicable). Dinner at restaurant to be chosen by members on the 27th.
