[GDC] Dev Gathering 1 Report

Posted by mmugdc on July 18, 2008

The first Games Development Gathering, or simply known as Dev Gathering, was held for the first time on the 16th of July 2008. By 8pm, only a few people came, so we waited for a few minutes and only then did we get a crowd.

So once everyone had settled down, Lee Xing Yao, the club’s president, gave his speech. He introduced about the purpose of this gathering and other details. The main idea of this gathering is to gather people who have the same interests in developing games and create a group to manage a project together.

Anyway, we also invited a special guest, Buzz, to share his experiences in games development. Buzz is an ex-MMU student, and is now in the industry working as a game developer. He wanted to show some of his games, but because we don’t have the room’s computer admin privileges, he couldn’t install his games. What a pity!! But nevertheless, thanks to YouTube, he still managed to show some videos of the games he created. It really looked fun!!

After that, it was Xing Yao’s turn to ahem, show off! So he downloaded some of his OWN games from his OWN website and showed it to us. Everything was made in Flash and it was really impressive what Flash (and also Xing Yao) can do!

The gathering then ended at about 9.45pm. Those who were interested in forming their own development groups however mingled around to discuss their own projects. We hoped everyone enjoyed this gathering and we will hold more of this gathering depending on the need. So, game on!!
