Orbit: Digital Storytelling – Ludum Dare and IFComp
October 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This month’s Digital Storytelling meetup will feature a group work session for Ludum Dare, a large online game jam that is going on all weekend. Even if you aren’t participating in Ludum Dare, you are still welcome to join in and spend some time making progress on your own projects! We will also be taking a look at the Interactive Fiction Competition, and how you can get involved as a judge by playing and rating this year’s entries.
NOTE: Due to the current circumstances, this is an online-only event. We are hosting it on our Discord server, which you can join using this link: discordapp.com/invite/mrTDyau

ABOUT ORBIT: DIGITAL STORYTELLING
Do you like to write? Do you like story based games?
If you are new to game development you can learn how to create interactive stories using Ren’py, Twine, or other game engines! We will also discuss other aspects of writing, game design, and interactive fiction.
The Digital Storytelling Orbit group meets at 1pm every first 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.
