    Tannin Wine Bar & Kitchen

    1526 Walnut Street, Kansas City, MO (map)


  • Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:
      Introduce new members. What have you worked on, game related or not? What do you want to work on next?
      Discuss this week's conversation starter. Some article, video or game that we can dig into a little.
      Members can present any games they're working on, for feedback or just to brag.
    Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.
    Looking forward to it!
