    This monthly meeting is a great opportunity for game developers to get valuable feed back for projects in progress. For game enthusiasts these events are a place to learn more about the game development process, techniques and systems behind games. The goal of these monthly meetings is not only to encourage and nurture the development of high quality games through testing and discussion, but also to create opportunities for game testers, players and enthusiasts to become more engaged and active in the game development community.

    The facilities and surroundings of Eyebeam make it an ideal place to test a variety of games — from analog to digital, from street to computer games, from quick to longer games. Some things that maybe avaiable during the event, depending on on-going gallery events, include: projector, speakers, mixer, computer stations (mac) with internet, wifi, indoor space, side walk space, various public parks in the area.
