View Full Version : Vancouver Indie Meet-Up
09-15-2005, 01:52 PM
We're looking to meet up with any Vancouver (Canada) area indies for the purposes of socializing and knowledge sharing :) Matt and I from Grubby Games will be attending, as will Jamie Cheng of Klei Entertainment (http://kleientertainment.com). If anyone else is interested in joining in, respond here!
Our plan is to meet on Sept 28th, 7pm, at the Milestone's restaurant at 2966 W 4th Ave.
We hope to see you there!

wait wait wait. You mean there are MORE indie developers right here in the lower mainland? I thought detective brand and I were the only ones :D We need a complete list!!
As for the meetup. I would loooooove to come, but the busses dont run that late around here. Do any of you live around maple ridge? Maybe I could bum a ride off ya ;)
Klei Entertainment, Grubby Games, Detective Brand and Photonik Games all around here. That is wicked!!

I would imagine that there are more than just the 4 indies you have listed, too... we just have to find them!
Also, is Detective Brand still active? Their domain name seems to have lapsed (unless I have the wrong address).
Regarding the meetup: No, Matt and I are not close to Maple Ridge :( We're both at/near downtown. I'm not sure where Jamie's from though.
Anyway, you should be able to catch a 701, a 160, and the 4 (or something similar) to get to Milestone's. Or, if that doesn't work, if you could just get closer to downtown somehow, I'm sure someone could pick you up and bring you the rest of the way.

I'm kind of in-between, in North Burnaby. If you end up taking that route, I'll be happy to help you the rest of the way.
See you guys there!

This is a reminder that the meet-up is tomorrow night!
See you there.

Zaphire is here? :)
Dude, I like learned to make games using your Dev-C++/Allegro/Blender tutorial! Heck, ive still got them on a cd somewhere...
I remember you used to hang around allegro.cc a lot. Then you kinda dissapeared. It is great to hear from you again, and even moreso that you reside in the lower mainland! :D
Great looking site you've got under construction btw.

It went well! Matt and I met up with the guys from Klei Entertainment (http://www.kleientertainment.com/) and had a great chat.
We'll have to do it again sometime when the rest of you are also available :)

I'm from White Rock... but I go to school in Toronto right now... If you guys have another meeting and I happen to be in town, I'd love to come.

Cool! There are more of us tha we thought! And there might be others hiding yet...
Anyway, I imagine we'll have another meet-up sometime in the new year. January?

Yeah, there are probably still a few (http://emceedeus.eliteforce.com/canadianProvinceBritishColumbiaCompanies.php) we haven't discovered yet. (Quite a few bigger names listed. However there are a handful of indies in there aswell)
