Welcome back, everybody! We’re meeting at the MADE at their NEW location at 3400 Broadway. (Note that the MADE is having an opening party on Friday, February 5, from 6 to 9 pm; I recommend that in addition to this meetup.)
So, what’s been happening in the world of IF in the last two months? Probably more than I could keep track of. But here’s a few choice morsels! Or bring your own!
- The Writer Will Do Something mrwasteland.itch.io/twwds
“The year is 2012. You are the head writer for the third game in the wildly popular ShatterGate™ franchise. Expectations are through the roof: fans of the series are waiting for the biggest, most bad-ass entry in the series yet, and your publisher is expecting the best-selling title in its history. But the game’s development hasn’t gone as smoothly as planned. One morning, just a couple months before E3 and six months before ship, an emergency meeting is called…”
- Yesterday, You Saved the World astriddalmady.com/savedtheworld.html
"Today you are only Lucy Newman, eighth grader, C student, nobody.
But yesterday, you were cosmic. Yesterday, you were a magical girl.
Yesterday, you saved the world. "
- What Fuwa Bansaku Found sub-q.com/play-fuwa-bansaku-found/
“A samurai explores a haunted shrine.” Suspensefully sparse.
- Monstr: Tinder for Monster itunes.apple.com/us/app/id1035034599
"One day you’re at the bus stop, running late for work, when you lay eyes on the HOTTEST HOTTIE YOU’VE EVER SEEN.
You gotta track that monster down and ask them on a date!! However: like everyone else in this world, you are hideous, fearsome MONSTER, so you’ve gotta use MONSTR, the dating site specifically for monsters seeking other monsters.
Browse MONSTR for the monster of your dreams. Avoid scambots and meanies. Persuade someone to go on a date with you!"
- Choice of Games released THREE games in December: Pendragon Rising (age of King Arthur), MetaHuman Inc. (you’re the CEO of a corporation that sells superpowers to the highest bidder), and Sixth Grade Detective (middle school crime drama).
Whew! That’s more than plenty. See you there!
When: Saturday, February 6, 2016 1:00 PM

This Meetup repeats on the 1st Saturday of every month.
