Orbit: 3D Game Design – Meet in a virtual space-themed room using Mozilla Hubs
January 23, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Join us on Saturday, January 23 for a different kind of 3D Game Design Orbit. Rather than the usual video chat in Discord, we will meet in a 3D simulated space-themed meetup room, built using Mozilla Hubs. You can join using a VR headset or from a web browser using your computer or mobile device. We will use the “general” Discord channel (not general-voice) to coordinate everyone getting connected. Instructions to connect from different platforms are below. After connecting, you choose an avatar and nickname and get ready to explore and interact with others. While in the 3D environment, Abigail Mathews will talk about how the Hubs environment was built and recent XR news from CES. We will also discuss some possible topics for upcoming 3D Game Design Orbits and would love to hear your feedback.
– PC: Just click on the link that will be provided. Most browsers should work.

ABOUT ORBIT: 3D GAME DESIGN
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 every fourth 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.
