Letter from the Organizer January 2017



Hello fellow game devs. January is the start of the new year year which brings new game jams, events and game development fun. We have several events already planned or being planned for this year and I know that myself, and the rest of our Youngstown Game Developer family cannot wait to share with all of the game development fun.

January Meetup

YGD Meetups

The first event we will be attending is the Global Game Jam which will be hosted by our friends, Cleveland Game Devs. It is a fun event where we get to meet all sorts of game developers, artists, musicians, enthusiasts, fans and more from the Northeast Ohio area. I hope you will join us with this adventure this month. Check out the details on our Meetup Page!

On January 17th, we have a social Hack Night at the Quaker Steak and Lube in Boardman. I look forward to seeing some new faces and old and talking about all of the neat projects we are working on. And, if you have any questions or need some help with one of your projects, come and talk with us! Sign up on our Meetup.


April Fools’ Game Jam

We have other events coming up for the year, including our yearly game jam, April Fools’ Game Jam. With even more prizes and cool stuff to give away, we expect this year’s April Fools’ Game Jam to be most excellent.

YGD Reddit

With January being a fresh start of the new year, we will be trying some new things, including a Reddit forum for us to chat about stuff. So, check out our Reddit. It is embedded on our website, and you can also find it on Reddit’s website.

I hope everyone’s game development is going well, and I hope everyone has welcomed 2017 in a fun, safe and exciting way. Cheers to the new year!
