gaming with game designers

Tonight I went to a GGDA meting. That’s Georgia Game Developer’s Association. Juan and I have been working audioGIANT.org now for a while (really Juan has been working on it, I just jumped in a week or two ago) and this is was a step to get to know the local game developers community better.

I’ve been playing with the idea of Game Audio for a while now. It’s certainly another facet of Sound Design, and heck, I love video games, so it only makes sense to at least pursue the idea some.

audioGIANT.org is basically an association of Game Audio developers in Georgia. We’re trying to stir up the game dev business in Georgia so maybe some of the abundance of audio guys in Georgia can start working on games.

It’s really interesting to work on a blog with other people. Here I just talk about whatever, rarely with any sort of focus or goal. But it’s interesting to search out particular info and present it to a group of people that are essentially on the same page as you. For instance, I know that most of what I’ve said above probably won’t interest most of the people who read this blog with any sort of regularity, but that’s OK. Also working alongside other people makes it feel very team-like, and while I’ve never liked sports much, working on a team has always pleased me.

So yeah, not much to say really. Met some new folks. A nice guy named Tom Grant that does character animation.Got my ass kicked in Call of Duty 4 4 by the guy who ran the gaming facility (doesn’t seem very fair does it?) Overall, had a nice time, and who knows where it’ll lead!
