November Social Recap
Our Halloween fundraiser was a huge success! We raised $2,210, well exceeding our goal, and were able to purchase a dedicated video editing computer earlier this month. We have more than 50 workshops and presentation videos we’ll be putting online in the near future! Thanks again to Gabby DaRienzo, Yuliya Boublikova and Hillary Connolly for all their hard work organizing and to Robby Duguay who’s been recording our events for the past couple of years!
New Game Makers
We wrapped up New Game Makers, our series of workshops for beginning game makers, for the fall season late last month. All five workshops sold out and we saw so many new faces!
The next season starts in January and we’ll have some new topics, including an introduction to animation and modeling. We’re always looking for new topics and instructors, so please get in touch with proposals!
Indigenous Routes Game Workshop
Starting in March 2015, we will be looking for mentors to help a group of indigenous women create their first games over the course of 10 weeks. Their games will be exhibited at TIFF during ImagineNATIVE festival in October, in custom cabinets. We’ll be running weekly workshops and monthly open sessions in collaboration with artists from Indigenous Routes.
Academic opportunities and interview requests:
We’ll be creating a new section on the web site to list these opportunities in the near future, but in the meantime, if you’re interested in any of these opportunities, email email@example.com and we’ll put you in touch.
Members Soha Kareem and Kaitlin Tremblay are currently helping curate an exhibition of DMG games at the Kniznick Gallery at the Women's Studies Research Center at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA. They’ll be traveling there in January to give a lecture, open the exhibit, and run a game jam.
Bento Miso is the Toronto hub for the Leap Motion/Indiecade 3D Jam, and DMG co-director Alex Leitch is working on a game with members Nadine Lessio and Yifat Shaik called “Three Pounds of Bees in Your Hands.” You’ll be able to play it at a showcase event, to be announced.
Upcoming Game Launches
Kara Stone’s Techno Tarot will be out within the next few weeks.
DMG/GDC Scholarship and Convoy
We’ve just announced DMG/GDC Scholarship program, which provides free All-Access pass to the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in the spring, and the GDC Convoy to help defray travel costs.
Upcoming events and workshops
We’ll have video available soon!
Rosemary joined the Golden Gear Games team in October 2013 as lead artist on Fate Tectonics, giving the game its distinctive pixel art style and guiding its visual language.
Gabby is a graphic designer, developer and artist, and hardworking DMG volunteer. She showed us Escape from Monster Mansion, a very clever local multiplayer game that she created with co-worker Nikola Odic at an internal game jam.
Christine is the writer and creator behind Analogue: A Hate Story, the award-winning first visual novel available on Steam. She shared some of the art and the dialogue system in her upcoming game, Ladykiller in a Bind — the first public peek!
