This Saturday we have a special event here at Code Club. We’ll be hosting a Computer Gaming Extravaganza together with Deckbound. Deckbound is a local gaming company that will be debuting a new game called Deckbound Heroes built right here in the Isle of Man. They will be sharing with us how Deckbound Heroes was created and the technology behind it, then show us how to play the game and finally run a competitivetournament with a £200 GAME voucher as a prize!

Because we have so much ground to cover we’ll be opening early this Saturday. The technical talk will run from 3:00pm till 4:00pm while 4:00pm till 6:00pm will be devoted to running the tournament and finding the local Deckbound Heroes Champion. To give you a flavour for the technical talk, Deckbound Heros as an HTML5 WebGL game, built with Node.js running on a Linux infrastructure. If you want to learn more, just us at 3:00pm this Saturday.

Oh, and by the way, all attendees will receive a free Deckbound card pack (retail value £9) which can be used when the game launches officially later this year.

Sounds exciting? It certainly does and I hope you can join us on Saturday. And if you know anyone else who would be interested, bring them along!
