A Shout out to Kelowna and Okanagan Video Game Developers

Oct 31st, 2009 | By | Category: Game Industry, Links

At the last OK Game Developer Cluster meet-up we discussed the need to get more people networked and involved in the local Game Developer here in Kelowna.  It is a wonderful blessing to have Disney and Club Penguin in our beautiful city as they has no doubt inspired many people to pick up the trade and try their hand at game design however we can accomplish so much more if we have the means to meet up, discuss and learn from each other.

So if you are in the Okanagan and are serious about developing games either in a team or as a lone wolf operation join the newly created linked in group here: http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=2416493 .  Feel free to contact myself, add me on twitter (www.twitter.com/ryanwiancko) and just reach out to this growing community.

And of course if you want more information and articles in audio format on game design and the business make sure to head over to www.industrybroadcast.com

    Well my studio has a facebook page at http://www.ironbellystudios.com .

    I wouldn’t look local to get involved in game dev, well not unless you live in Montreal or Austin. Find communities onlnie like the unity or UDK community and develop virtual contacts
