schedule for the weekend

I just posted the schedule over at the NMS 2013 page. Go check it out!

The attentive jammer also notices the International Local Multiplayer Championships planned for Saturday night. Since everyone’s been making multiplayer games lately, we figured NMS would be a great venue to challenge each other in the games we’ve made. We’ll figure out more details during the jam, but make sure to bring any zany games you’ve made and we’ll shout about them some.

If the gods of internet smile upon us, we’ll live stream the entire thing too.

Oh, and since the weathers’ looking promising, don’t forget your swimwear!

NMS2013

Hello everyone. I’ve been meaning to write this blog post for about a month now, but, as it turns out, it releasing two games for four separate platforms takes up quite a bit of my time. Sorry!

Either way, No More Sweden 2013 is a thing! We’ll be at the same location as last year, you can read more about this on the information page. That page will be continuously updated with more info as we get it. You can go there and sign up right now!

One of our ambitions this year is to make an effort to even out the gender balance for the event. Last year about 10% of the attendees were women, we know we can do better here and we’ll need your help to do it.

There are two parts to this plan. Firstly we need to make our event as inclusive as possible, this basically means being nice to everyone and respecting them for who they are.
We’re pretty good at this already, but there’s always room for improvement.

The second part is outreach, bring anyone you feel can make NMS a more interesting place and we’ll have a great time together!

Here’s a few snaps I took at the venue yesterday.

This is one of the working spaces.
This is the other one, we’ll have the talks in here too.

This is the workshop in the basement, we won’t be using it but it’s so cool I still had to put it in here.

closing time

Whoa! We’ve blasted all previous records for attendees with 65 people signed up so far and the time is nearing to close the form. You have until Sunday 20/5 23:59 (UTC+1) to sign up and be guaranteed a spot (unless we fill up the venue).

And just as before, the form is here.

Stay tuned for info about presentations and other interesting things!
