Last month Every1Games sponsored and hosted #EatPlayMingle along with the International Game Developers Association from George Brown College. The event was an opportunity for programmers, artists, designers and students to come together and enjoy a night out while networking, playing games and eating pizza. There was a great turn out and a lot of connections were formed.
The attendees had the opportunity to learn more about Every1Games as we surveyed interests from excelling students who’d be interested in mentoring high school students.
They also got to engage with the members of 13AM Games on their process of making their new release Runbow which was created at a Toronto Game Jam and is coming out soon for the WiiU. (Runbow was also showcased at last years Level Up Student Showcase which is coming up again in april). 13AM Games spoke about their experiences making their game but also gave advice to those who want to follow in their footsteps. During the event there was an open opportunity for everyone to have a chance to play Runbow before it’s release.
Every1Games also recruited a team of 10 students who participated at this years Global Game Jam, a world-wide game development event where teams spend 48 consecutive hours developing a game based on a theme. This year 21,000 people in 78 countries participated. Check out the games!
We plan on hosting more #EatPlayMingle events in the future, subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed of all our upcoming events.
