This is a reminder of the monthly meeting for March taking place next Monday. This month, we will be featuring a talk by Stephen McCallum of Brain Warp StudiosStephen will begin by presenting his crowd-funding campaign for OOG! Clan of the Caveman and then launch into an open and frank discussion with the group about crowd-funding and the challenges of launching an indie game company. Be sure to come out for this presentation on a timely subject that is changing the face of modern game development.

We have the pub patio area reserved (which is covered and heated) and a ton of space. There are 3 TVs that we can hookup to and display slides or show off your current projects.  Come relax, talk shop and enjoy the awesome local food and craft-brewed beer.
