This Saturday, we are hosting an event in celebration of International Nodebot day.
Last meeting, we created Dodge, a video game where you move your dinosaur out of the way of falling rocks.
In this meeting, we will be creating a game similar to Flappy Bird, Pitfall and Defender, or for the modern among us, Geometry Dash. This one is called Platformer.
Come join us on May 20 at 11a at our Club Garage!
