EDINBURGH UNI'S GAME DEVELOPMENT SOCIETY
More on the Facebook event here!
We create a welcoming environment for seasoned game developers and beginners alike. We also host a diverse range of events, during which you can share your knowledge and ideas with others in a stimulating environment.
SOCIALS: MICROTALKS, WORKSHOPS & SHOWCASE
Talk to people about games, come by if you are just curious, listen (or give!) short talks, learn about gamedev and play or receive feedback on your games. Non-members and non-students welcome!
Every month, a Saturday evening
Challenge yourself and make a game in a day or two! It's a great way to get started and improve your skills.
One per semester
