Our January 20th talk will be at a different time and place than usual!
Where: Microsoft New England Research and Development Center, Commons area
When: 6pm-9pm, Monday, January 20th, 2014
What: Liz Surette will be giving a crash course in legal issues in indie game dev. Topics may include:
December is always a rough month with travel and holidays abound, so last year we tried something new. We threw a holiday party instead of our normal talks/demo nights, and it was a great success!
It’s a chance to play games that you may have missed this year, catch up with old friends, meet new ones, and toast to the new year.
So put on your best ugly reindeer sweater, grab some hot cocoa (or a beer) and a game or two, and head on over to our Boston Indies Holiday Festivus meet up on December 16th at 7pm.
See you then!

The next Boston Indies meetup is a Demo Night next Monday, November 18th at 7PM. Bring your games in to get some feedback or stop by to drop some knowledge on other local developers.
Same bat time, same bat channel:
355 Congress Street, 2nd Floor
BYOB or BYOB to share!
There were board games abound, tons of video games, even an Occulus Rift! Gamers came from all over to spend their time raising money for Boston Children’s Hospital.
All told, we raised nearly $2000!
HUGE thanks to Intrepid, who provided free pizza and drinks for all the hungry marathoners! We can’t wait for next year!
