  1. Hey Mark, I replied your PM but just in case someone else is checking this thread, most of our public communication goes through our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/grxlGamers/ so please follow that for info on our next guild meeting. Feel free to email me directly too at phillip.brossia@spectrumhealth.org
  2. We are live now Violent Sol Kickstarter please check it out and share it.
  3. Not sure what happened there, the post had the video in it, and now it doesn't. I readded the link.
  4. Hey guys, I have been with Extra Life for 4 years now and I am the President of the Grand Rapids guild. So this isn't spam. My little company Afterthought Games is going to be doing a Kickstarter campaign next week for a game we are making called Violent Sol Worlds. We're not allowed to advertise it on the Kickstarter (which is ridiculous) but our plan is to give 5% of our earnings to Extra Life, 10% if we are funded in the first 24 hours. We are also launching a game called Cornflower Corbin the day before and we are going to be promoting both of them at the Maker Faire in our city next weekend. Anyway, I just wanted to post about both here to try to get the word out. I will post again when they both are live. Below are the relevant links if anyone is interested. Violent Sol Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/651297750/1491401610?ref=328434&token=4afc02f2 Cornflower Corbin on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/624780/Cornflower_Corbin/ Thanks in advance for checking them out.
  5. Herbertsmart, I completely agree with everything you said here. I have been thinking about this feedback for a few days now and the same thing that didn't sit right with me, seemed to not sit right with you either. In particular the leadership structure. We can't get people to take on the current responsibilities as they are written in the guild rules. That and we only have 3 to 4 people that even show up at all. It essentially falls on myself to do all the roles, and ask if the others are willing to take on any given task that comes up. Changing up the way they are written will not change that fact, at least in my case.
  6. I hope I don't come off sounding bitter. I truly do enjoy my time with the guild program. Just passionate about making it better.
  7. So, I am signed up and recruiting already this year. Does anyone know the date for game day yet?
  8. Hey everyone, I am way out on a limb here starting a gaming studio. We have a game that is not quite ready to release but we stand a real chance to win Indie Game of the Year on IndieDB.com. If you have a minute, can you come cast your vote for us. I am really hoping this studio is successful so that I can make Grand Rapids Extra Life huge. http://www.indiedb.com/games/violent-sol-worlds Thank you so much for your support. If you are curious, our studio site is here http://afterthoughtgames.com/
  9. I know it goes through the end of the year, just starting to work on next year too. We Extra Lifers can multitask.
  10. Have you guys done a recruitment event after game day like this before? If so, how does it go?
  11. So, what's the date for 2017? We got planning to do already.

    This meeting is solely for planning for gameday and try to button up some of the last minute stuff that needs to happen. It will be in our normal meeting room at the hospital. Helen Devos Children's Hospital Lobby, behind the reception desk

  17. We usually have some sort of attention getter. Most commonly we have a retroDuo set up that plays old Nintendo games on an old CRT TV. That draws people in and we let them play as long as they listen to us sell them on Extra Life. I have my elevator pitch down pretty good at this point.

  24. Yes we are organizing a event for game day. We are playing right at the hospital for the whole 25 hours. There will also be the "Save a Life" tournament that day that we have had the last couple of years.
