There was a discussion on the discord server about Gamedev meetups in bars. Many people are uncomfortable in a bar setting which makes it even harder to socialize and build connections. So, instead I proposed that jumping into voicechat and playing a few rounds of a game together while chatting about nothing in particular would be a better idea. If it takes off, we can invite more people from the industry. Perhaps special events like playing Battlefield with the DICE crew or a game of Overwatch with Blizzard.
This is meant as a community building excercise, nothing more. It’s not a recruitment drive so don’t go into it trying to pitch your CV Just playing some games with some friends (who could potentially hire you in the future).
For the first one, I suggest Overwatch at 18.00 CET next saturday (22 september). Location: The comfort of your micenabled home. I’ll set up a channel on the discord server for it.
I’ll see you there!
