Ok, so it got approved! Yay!
It opens on the 30th of March and will stay up for 3-4 weeks.
It's at:
Babycastles
145 W 14th St.
New York, NY 10011

So, now we should figure everything out!

DESCRIPTION
As a refresher, this what we agreed on before, but we can change little bits of this:

Glorious Trainwrecks Goes to NYC (name tentative) is a salon style group show curated by and featuring many members from the Glorious Trainwrecks community. The games will consist of games made for a specific Glorious Trainwrecks Babycastles game Jam and older games that have been submitted to the site over the years. Based on the amount of submissions, games will be shown on as many computers as possible. Based on submissions and computers available, some computers will have multiple games on them which will change by a timer. The amount of games shown will reflect the diversity of members on the website. There will be a computer/group of computers where people can make plingpling games that can also be shown in the gallery. The show will coincide with the release of a Glorious Trainwrecks CD/Zine that will be available.
WHAT WON'T BE ON THE FORM

MEETINGS!!!!!!!
CAN WE ALL MEET ABOUT THIS ON WEDNESDAY AT SOMETIME, MAYBE AROUND 10 PM EASTERN STANDARD TIME?
LIKE GOOGLE HANGOUTS OR SOMETHING OF THAT SORT?
WOULD BE NICE TO SEE ALL YOUR FACES :-)
Comment below if you can, and then we'll all figure it out.
You can send me your email in private messages if you want to do hangouts, or if you'd rather skype, please say so!

ROLES
We will need plenty of help with this in NY and outside of NY.
If someone wants to make posters and such, those responsibilities will be listed here.

SUBMISSIONS
Please restate what you want to submit in the comments below if you want to submit something from a past event.
This should either be a game you have already made for Glorious Trainwrecks, or a new game for this event.
Also, write specs like:

  1. what are the controls/can it use a game pad like a 360 controller
  2. about how long the game takes
  3. mac/pc/web?

I will provide a list and links to each game here.
Submit as many games as you'd like, but in case we have to narrow things down, pick one favorite or list them in order.

GAME JAM
In regards to the game jam for this, I'm thinking things should be due the 10th so we can have time to figure

FLOOR LAYOUT
This will be updated once I get a better image of it.

SUPPLIES
This will be a checklist for all the things we need for the event.
Babycastles has an amount of computers and controllers and such, but we could always use more.
We may have a bit of a budget to buy more things, but I will ask them in the meeting tonight.
If we need anything it shall be listed here.

EVENTS
If we have any more events or specific things like that, we should all have ideas for things like this.
If any of you play music or anything like that and will be in the New York area when that is happening, please let us know!
Just throw out really crazy ideas for events too, like literally anything, brainstorm. :-)

PROMOTION
How will we promote these things?
Babycastles has traditionally hung up posters around town, but we can do whatever we want in that regards.
I like the idea of posters and maybe something else that is more in line with what we do!

NAME
We should come up with some cool name for this too!

Please comment about all of these things below.
I'm glad that it seems as though people are enthusiastic about this too!
