Yesterday we attended the London Games Developer meetup, this was a meetup with a difference as rather than just talks and networking, there was *shock horror* actual coding!
A meetup about more than just beer and pizza? Crazy talk!
Anyhow, the subject of the first workshop was Turbulenz, a HTML5 game engine that not only gives high quality visuals but also helps with adding social functions to your game.
One of the most interesting features of the product is the Hub, which offers the ability to not just rapidly iterate but that it enables you to set up private testing groups quickly and easily. This means real feedback from actual users, which is incredibly important, as you do not want to burn through cash and development time on a feature that users don’t like or understand.
And the best bit? Its royalty and license free!
