This month’s 3D Game Design meetup will feature a presentation about Unreal from Jeremiah Rhoades, founder of upstate NY-based independent game studio Nonage.

Jeremiah Rhoades will be speaking on his team’s decision to use Unreal Engine 4 for PowerBots, and why it was a great choice for Nonage as an independent development team. This presentation will go into detail on the UE4 community continuing to bring excitement and useful knowledge to the table, and ways that Epic Games makes it easy to dive in to game development for people at any level of experience.


Looking to expand your 3D game development skills? This group is for you!

The 3D Game Design Orbit group is intended to help local game makers connect, and to provide a forum for mutual support and peer-based mentorship. This group focuses on topics related to popular 3D game engines such as Unity, Unreal, Godot, and more.

The 3D Game Design Orbit group meets at 1pm on the 4th Saturday of the month in the #general-voice channel of the Tech Valley Game Space Discord. These group meetups provide opportunities for participants to share information, discuss projects, ask questions, and obtain guidance from experienced mentors.


Orbit is a community-driven mentorship program designed to provide greater opportunities for learning and collaboration at Tech Valley Game Space than ever before!

The goal of Orbit is to bring current and aspiring game makers together based around mutual interests, and provide a consistent environment for sustained skill development, personal growth, and community building.

Orbit groups are run as informal, drop-in sessions. However, we do ask that you sign up in advance and read the age guidelines for each group before participating. To sign up, visit techvalleygamespace.com/orbit.
