Game Club: Firewatch (hosted by Patrick T.) (March 16th, 7:30-9:30)

Hey all!

As you’ve probably already figured out, our Game Club game for this month is “Firewatch”, and it will be hosted by Patrick. A first-person adventure that takes place in the Shoshone National Forest, you are placed in the role of Henry, a fire lookout. As ominous things begin to happen, it’s up to you and your supervisor, Delilah, to communicate via walkie-talkie and work together to unravel the mystery.

Firewatch can be played on Windows, OS X, Linux, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.

Try your best to play some of the game before you arrive, and be prepared for spoilers! We will meet in the boardroom and begin the discussion after 7:30 pm.

Game Club: Oddworld – New ‘n’ Tasty! (hosted by William) (January 19)

If you enjoy discussing games, come to the Tech Valley Game Space for Game Club!

Every month, participants pick a game to play, then get together and talk about their experiences! Think of this group as being a traditional book club, but with video games instead of books. People discuss various aspects of the game that they liked, disliked, or simply found notable; everything from music, character design, and storytelling, to the in-game physics, level creation, or graphics quality.

Anyone can attend – no memberships necessary. So long as you’ve got the right equipment at home, and enough time and interest to play at least a little of the game, then you’re welcome to join in!

This month’s host is William, and he’s selected “Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty!” This highly-rated and well-awarded game was developed by Oddworld Inhabitants Inc, and takes place on a giant planet in another dimension. There, a series of strange but gutsy protagonists fight against the nefarious spread of big businesses across their damaged world in an attempt to save the environment, their cultures, and their communities.

You can play Oddworld on Playstation, Xbox, Playstation 3, Windows, Wii U, and PC.

Try your best to play some of the game before you arrive, and be prepared for spoilers!

We will meet in the boardroom and begin the discussion after 7:30 pm.
