November Meeting Guest: Ian Schreiber

Time to announce this month’s edition of “invite Dave’s contacts from the game industry!” Our guest via Skype at the November meeting on the 19th will be game designer, professor, and author Ian Schreiber.

Ian has been in the game industry since 2000 as a programmer and designer. Currently, he is a designer at Loot Drop, the social games studio founded by industry veterans Brenda Brathwaite and John Romero.

He has also co-authored 2 books with Brenda, including Challenges for Game Designers and Breaking Into the Game Industry: Advice for a Successful Career from Those Who Have Done It. (Yeah, that’s a long title.)

He is currently an adjunct professor at Columbus State Community College in Columbus, OH. You can also find his musings on game design on his blog, Teaching Game Design. (See more about him on LinkedIn.)

Ian will be presenting his interactive game design workshop. In his own words…

“He’s performed in San Francisco, Atlanta and Columbus… and now for the first time, Game Design Improv comes to Nebraska! What is Game Design Improv? It’s a fast-paced, hands-on workshop for game design, inspired by the principles of improv comedy. All experience levels welcome.”

He asks that people bring pen, paper, notecards, and dice (6-siders will suffice).

We will be camped out at our recent home, the Scooter’s on 180th and Q. (Hopefully, for the last time!) As usual, the meeting starts at 6 and we expect to begin with Ian by 6:30. Please be prompt!

You can follow Ian on Twitter at @IanSchreiber.

    Dave, did you mean 180th & Q rather than 108th?
