BDPA Detroit TAC Meeting June 2015

Open Source and Homebrew Gaming Night


 Tux gaming


Are you interested in building your own video game, but have no idea where to start or meet up with other gamers?  Then the next BDPA TAC meeting is for you.


June 16, 2015

7PM to 9PM

@ Tech Town

440 Burroughs St, Detroit, MI 48202


There will be a talk on simple game development and what free, open source, and low cost tools and resources are available, followed by an hour of playing open source, homebrew, &  hacked games.  This is a great opportunity for those of us who build indie games in our free time to exchange ideas and see what other people are working on. It's also an excellent time just to kick back with other people in the Metro Detroit area and play a few games you've never heard of.
