Karts For Kids April 26th

Want to prove you racing superiority and benefit a great cause before the end of the semester?  Show your skills at the SGD and sponsored Mario Kart Tournament. Entrance to the tournament is just $10, and all proceeds go towards benefiting Child's Play!

The event will be held:
Friday, April 26th, from 5 PM to 8 PM
in the Newcomb Game Room

Come earlier to join the Gamer's club in their "Gamer's Give Back" event!  Games will be available to play throughout the day, with the proceeds also benefiting Child's Play.

If you want to donate using a credit card you can do so using the widget below. All money collected here will be sent directly to Child's Play without going through us. All we will see is the name you enter so that we let you in to the tournament. In order to enter you will need to donate at least $10.

Zynga, XNA, and Future Posts

Hi Everyone,

So the first order of business is to announce that Zynga will be coming to give a talk to UVA's SGD about game development, the tools, and the industry. Also there will be SWAG =). Anyone who is interested in gaming is welcome to join. Its this Wed. Sep 29.

Now XNA, the XNA tutorial that we did is currently being edited and will be on the UVA SGD site soon. Once it's up I'll put a link to it here as well. =)

Anyway, we are all really busy with our games and all the teams are off to a good start but if you are still interested in joining the club shoot an email to sgd and we will try to get you on a team, but as the semester wears on it will become harder and harder to do that. Don't worry there is also next semester, and you can always try making a game on your own, we will always be here to help and dish out advice.

Happy Coding!
