October Gathering Rocked!

With coldness in the air things got a whole lot warmer at IGDA’s gathering last Tuesday (Oct. 3) at Cuba. As always the gathering was full of action with 101 friends and colleagues networking and enjoying rich conversation and in the back Retro games ruled with players rocking out with Contra and Super Mario Bros.

We are also please to congratulate EveryPlay’s Amplifier for winning Mindtrek’s Launch Pad.

Over 100 apps use Applifier to promote their application to over 55 million monthly active users on Facebook. Congrats EveryPlay!

Also cool news, TAIK (Aalto University School of Art and Design) started a Game Design and Production Master of Arts program. It is a 2-year degree program that provides unique possibility for building game design skills while building theoretical and conceptual understanding on games. More Info.

Well that's it from here. Our next gathering will be Nov. 9th so keep your eyes open for more information.
