February Meet-up Recap and Other News

Fargo Game Makers took a break over the month of January, but was back on February 17th bigger and better then ever!

The biggest update was the change in venue, as we had the opportunity to meet in the spacious Fargo Coco co-working space in downtown Fargo.


Numerous teams returned to the meet-up to share their progress on their projects. The highlight of the evening was checking out Wicked Soul Studios newest project, a pirate themed platformer that is coming to the Nintendo Wii-U.
