Nothing says ‘fun’ like a bunch of nerds in a pub together, which is why we’re planning indie drinks, to pretend to talk about game development, but really we’re just hoping to get out of the house for once.
There’s already another, rival (hackspit) indie meetup, but that’s up in Angel which, if you live in South London you’ll be aware is the hardest part of London to get to. Still, at least this way we now have a viable set of enemies, hopefully culminating in preposterous scenes such as these. Develop magazine have promised us a front cover if we actually do that, by the way. You can’t buy publicity like that.
Let me know in the comments below where/ when is most convenient for you.
You don’t need to be an indie developer to come by, these things always work better when there’s journos and grown-ups present, so feel free to chip in even if you’ve got a proper job.
HOWEVER: nothing ruins a good nerd party like uncomfortable guests or lots of tension, both of which can result from mixing immature, misogynistic male-gamers with female counterparts. Though we’ve done our best to avoid women in years past, we’ve certainly had our share of problems. As a result, we will not allow women to attend this event.
I’m thinking Waterloo, since most people can get there relatively easily what with all the choo-choo trains, tube links and buses. And not on a Monday, for heavens’ sake! Mondays are pretty much the only guaranteed whiskey-free day of the week, right?
IN CASE YOU’VE MISSED THE NEWS: the bit about ‘women’ is finely-crafted satire. Here is your context. Women are most welcome.
