Want to spend your Thursday night wrestling a pitbull to the ground & high-fiving a pizza as you lose yourself in a ‘giddy apocalypse’? Then come join us this Thursday, October 2nd, at 7:00PM at Austin’s North Door as we present the local double-feature premiere of Kevin Cancienne’s local multiplayer dog-em-up Dog Park & Jane Friedhoff’s Slam City Oracles.
One last event recommendation for the day: New Yorkers will get the chance to see Bennett Foddy — creator of QWOP, CLOP, GIRP, PoleRiders, bioethics professor & real actual ex-member of Cut Copy — speak this Friday, September 28th, at the NYU Game Center as part of their regular lecture series.
Foddy will be speaking on “high-level creative procedures for ideation, his iterative design process, and rules of thumb for solid creative process”, says the center, and will have a selection of his games available for public play following the talk, which will begin at 7PM. You can RSVP for the event here, and you definitely actually should, because Foddy’s as super keen a thinker and speaker as he is a game creator.
