IGDA Chapter Membership Meeting 10/25

Hello everyone... We're please to announce the membership kick-off meeting for New Mexico's first Independent Game Developers Association (IGDA) on October 25th.  With the success of film and digital media in New Mexico, we're seeing more and more interest in building a local game development cluster, and we believe this new IGDA chapter can help make that happen.  We hope you'll join us on the 25th.

More info to follow, but big thanks meanwhile to Abalone Studios' Glyn Anderson for lining up our speaker
and to Global Haptics' Mike Wallace for securing the venue...

Please pass this along as widely as possible!


Radical Entertainment CEO Kelly Zmak will speak at the Albuquerque Independent Game Developers Association (IGDA) chapter kick-off event on Thursday, October 25th. Founded in 1991, and headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Radical Entertainment has grown to become one of North America's largest developers of interactive entertainment. Radical is dedicated to bringing creativity and innovation to every aspect of its business from technology to philanthropy, gaining press recently for the highly anticipated game, "Prototype".

Reflecting New Mexico's small but growing game development community, IGDA organizers include more traditional game companies, but also educators and people working in training, modeling and simulation development at the national labs. The kick-off event will help connect local game developers; it's scheduled to run from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at Sauce in downtown Albuquerque.
