Pitch Meeting, Fall 2010

For those who just met us at the Engineering Expo and Activities Fair, welcome to the Gamedevs Website! Here we'll be announcing all of our upcoming events, such as speakers, expos, and career related talks. But for now, we're announcing the SGD Fall Pitch Meeting!

The Pitch Meeting generally serves as our first ever meeting of the semester, and at this pitch meeting all of those previously mentioned aspiring Directors proceed to pitch their game concepts and ideas to the club in a presentation-style format. After all of the pitches have been completed (10-15 minutes each), everyone in the club fills out a form indicating which games they'd like to work on and what positions on those games they would like to fill, and then everyone is matched best according to their wishes combined with the needs of each team. Of course if you have any questions during the meeting about how we work or anything like that, feel free to ask, or e-mail me back directly with your query.

Our pitch meeting this semester is:

When: Thursday, September 2nd 7:30PM
Where: Olsson Hall 005

Please swing on by if you are interested in joining us in our endeavors to make cool games! IIf any of the games being pitched appeal to you, then all you'll have to do is indicate on a little form we hand out that you are interested in working on that game and you and the Director and all of your new teammates will hook up and spend the rest of the Semester making awesome games! If you can't make it to the meeting then don't worry! A post will be posted here detailing all of the pitches and positions and how to apply as if you had been there anyway! More details about speakers, workshops and expos will be coming soon!

I'm looking forward to seeing you all soon.
