Things are starting to get festive out there, which means it’s time for IGDA Chicago and Industry Night‘s annual Game Dev Holiday Mixer! Get ready for an evening of socializing, games, and merriment for game developers of all disciplines at the Emporium Arcade Bar, complete with tons of delicious food from NetherRealm, Wargaming, and Zynga.
Best of all, we’ll be raising donations for The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital — good times for a good cause!
The event starts at 7pm. NetherRealm and Wargaming will be kicking us off with tasty thin crust pizzas and savory Italian beef from Lou Malnati’s, so arrive hungry!
Shortly thereafter, developers will take to the stage to showcase a selection of amazing local games:
Around 9pm, Zynga will refresh the crowd’s pizza needs with a selection of outstanding pies from Dimo’s.
At 10:15pm, the charity raffle commences, with incredible prizes, including collector’s editions of Mortal Kombat X, studio swag, local game codes, and an iPad.
Raffle tickets are just $5 and all proceeds go to the cause, so don’t hesitate to try your luck.
In all, we’re looking at quite an amazing evening and we all hope to see you there!
