This week we’ll be showing you how to quickly find Creative Commons materials (sprites, sounds, music, etc.) that you can use in your GMD 2011 game submissions for free. Knowing about the Creative Commons license and where to find media that uses it is incredibly useful and time-saving when making your GMD game, which is why we’ll be going over it in this week’s meeting.
Also, there’s some more good news, everyone. The videogame submission deadline for GMD 2011 has been EXTENDED by ONE week. The new videogame submission deadline is now Thursday, February 3, 2011 at 9 p.m. EST. So, enjoy that extra time to polish up your game submissions.

This week we’ll be doing something a little different compared our usual meetings. We will be designing and creating a card game. The game will start out with an objective and a simple set of rules, which will eventually evolve and be expanded upon by the group as we playtest our card game. The goal here is to have you all participate in an activity that some developers use to prototype their games in order to establish a fun and balanced game design. Credit goes to game club member Sean for suggesting this idea.
It should be a fun meeting, and we hope to see many, if not all, of you there.
Also, our meeting this Thursday will be the LAST opportunity for anyone who hasn’t already signed up and submitted their entry fee for GMD 2011 to do so. After this week’s meeting, which is on Thursday, January 20 from 5p.m. – 7p.m. in BA B026, if you have not already submitted your form and entry fee for GMD 2011, then you will NOT be allowed to submit your game for this year’s GMD. So make sure that you get in on the fun and the prizes of GMD 2011 by getting your form and money in by then.

Our first game club meeting of the new year will be on Thursday, January 13 from 5p.m. – 7p.m. in BA B026.

Happy Holidays. No game club meeting this week.
Classes have finished for this semester, so there will be no game club meeting this week (and for the rest of this year).

Until then, good luck with your GMD games (post to the forums at forum.utgddc.com if you need help), good luck with exams, and we’ll see you all in the new year!
Also, I just wanted to remind anyone who hasn’t signed up yet for GMD 2011 that you can still do so until Thursday, December 16. The registration form can be found at http://gmd.utgddc.com/2011/files/GMD2k11rules1.pdf, and you can get in touch with Shane, the GMD Coordinator, at email@example.com to arrange a time to meet up with him so that you or your team can pay the $10 registration fee.

offering help with programming and other aspects of their game’s development.
Also, due to an increased workload on everyone with exams and such, we want to find out who will be able to make it out to next week’s game club meeting on Thursday, December 9 from 5pm â€“ 7pm. Please hit the â€œreplyâ€ button and let us know if you’d be able to come out to next
week’s meeting. If there are enough people interested, then we will be having a game club meeting next week.
