Newsblast #11: Christmasblast

I’ve been posting short newsletters to the Meetup group mailing list recently, and this blog has been a bit neglected. So I thought I should post them here too; people can find them more easily and read if they’re not a meetup member.

This is a bumper Newsblast, full of lovely festive news!

Games Forum London

This is 2 day games and games-business conference in London in January. A broad range of speakers, from developers, to journalists, to marketers and a cross-platform focus make it a promising new event.

We have been given 2 tickets to give away to members, so please get in touch with me (mrjoebain@gmail.com), or come along to one of the meetups to get your name in the draw. You can also get 10% off the regular ticket price using our discount code: LDNINDIES10.
