Good news for all you gamers out there: You no longer have to trek to Silicon Valley and put up with outrageous living expenses to work in the gaming industry. This week a community of indie game developers is holding a networking event designed to connect artists, musicians and programmers who want to collaborate on making video games. Right now there is only one full-time game studio in Louisville, but the hope is to connect all of the hobbyists and part-timers out there so that Louisville can grow its gaming industry. The event will be like speed-dating with artists and their 2D or 3D art (paintings, digital art, computer models, et cetera), musicians or sound designers with sound and music samples, and programmers with prototypes (or full working copies) of games.
