June Meetup Announcement! Do the side hustle: Indie games with a full-time job

Our June meetup (also on Facebook) has a special guest! Kenny Backus of Sky Rogue fame is in town, and he has kindly agreed to come in and chat with our community!

The Talk – Do the Side Hustle: Indie Games with a Full Time Job?

We’ve all wondered how to keep up with the demands of our lives while we try to make cool games. Kenny’s gonna fill us in!

Our Speaker

Kenny Backus is a programmer at Uken Games and the founder of Fractal Phase. He formerly worked at Funcom, THQ, Ubisoft, and Snowcastle Games, making his own games on the side the whole time. He’s most interested in procedural generation, low-poly 3D art, and game feel. Originally from North Carolina, he moved to Montreal with his wife Kristi in 2009 and now lives in Toronto. Ask him about “fwooshies”!

Location and Time

The meetup will take place at 7:30PM on June 13th at Common Ground, 30 Harvey Road.
