I am a Web designer and programmer and in my near zilch spare time lately, I like to try out some amateur gaming and game development. Just a few days ago a few of my Meetup friends decided to try out a little FPS.
More About Meetup
I operate my business in Brampton and currently do work with companies in and around the GTA. A few months ago the Brampton Web Design Meetup was started up. It’s a very simple board that can help people with similar interests to sign up on-line then eventually meetup in person. It’s actually a great concept. I know the Toronto Graphic Design Meetup was one of the first ones I joined and it would have anywhere from 20 to 30 graphic designers meeting up on a monthly basis. It is great for inspiration and commisertion
Anyway, I decided to post my little FPS test game that I put together using the startup files from the GarageGames.com. I know the game was a pretty big hit last year with some of my friends from the How Design Forum and ones I met via the GarageGames.com forums. My initial post didn’t garner as much interest as I had thought it would. Mind you, I didn’t have a lot of members. Last week changed. I got a few people playing and boy was it fun A few of the Web designers and mixed bagged technologist from my M
eetup signed up and we played a few rounds of FPS.
So for those possible interested, please check out the download and tourney info from The Brampton Web Design Meetup page.
I hope to see you there sometime!
