As developers we know that it's not always easy to get people to play the games that we make. We also know that it's not always easy to find motivation to work on the games you want to make.

This is why, once every other Saturday at 15:00 UTC, we will hold an event for playing home-made games.

We have had such an event once already, on Saturday May 12th 15:00 UTC, and we considered it a success. Games that were played then was: Cardshifter, The Royal Game of Ur, Tic-Tac-Toe Ultimate, Checkers, Minesweeper Flags, and Connect Four. People participating in the event included, among others, @Phrancis @EthanBierlein @DainIronfootIII and myself. Some of us were streaming on Twitch and personally I had a record of 6 viewers (I don't have many followers - yet, still quite new to streaming).

If you are developing a game that you would like us to play, you may suggest it in Coding Projects chat room.

  • So it's up to game developpers to make their game available online? Or will there be some sort of mutualized hosting? – Mathias Ettinger May 23 at 8:47

    @MathiasEttinger It's currently up to everyone to make their game available online (or downloadable or runnable somehow). If there is need for hosting let me know and I might be able to solve this - but I can't promise anything. – Simon Forsberg May 23 at 10:08
  • Is there an option to make these activities be available to people with already conflicting bi-weekly activities? Assuming this is going to be a bi-weekly thing – Peilonrayz May 24 at 17:06
  • @Peilonrayz Suggest a time and we might have another event, depending on who else can play at that time! You can also hop into the chatroom at any time and ask if someone wants to play one of the home-made games. We tend to play especially Checkers and Royal Game of Ur every now and then. – Simon Forsberg May 24 at 17:08
  • I get a 403 Forbidden when trying to reach games.zomis.net :( – Mathias Ettinger May 25 at 8:18
  • @MathiasEttinger Whoops, I will look into that before the event starts. – Simon Forsberg May 25 at 10:42
  • @MathiasEttinger youtube.com/watch?v=nn2FB1P_Mn8 - Works now! – Simon Forsberg May 25 at 20:13
  • @mdfst13 Updated the post. It will automatically be removed from the sidebar sometime. – Simon Forsberg Jun 1 at 8:13
  • Great initiative! – Denis Jun 20 at 13:18
