Bringing together designers and players to build better board games in San Diego
Games and Designers
Summer 2016 Event
Thank you very much to our sponsors for helping us to make Unpub Mini San Diego a great event!
Galvanized Studios, a San Diego-based game design company, organized Unpub Mini San Diego because there was nothing like it going on in the area. The company is working on its first game, Micromanage, a corporate-themed social card game for 2-6 players, and is currently seeking a publisher. After meeting other local game designers and seeing a lack of opportunities to get game designers and game players together, Galvanized Studios decided to host its own Unpub Mini in San Diego.
Unpub, or The Unpublished Games Network, supports the game design and development community by organizing events designed to help unpublished games and their designers receive public playtests and feedback. These events are open to anyone who wishes to attend and play these games. Players are asked to evaluate the games based on their tastes and provide constructive criticism in the form of verbal and written feedback.
We are primarily a small group of game designers, namely Pat Marino, Jim DiCamillo, and our newest contributor Tristan Rios. We all share a passion for table top games, which like many others has led us to design our own games. At the moment we seem to have more ideas than time to develop them; and though we live in different parts of the country we do our best to share ideas (and prototypes) in an effort to move closer to publication. While we have our own designs that we work on and post on our site, we also enjoy connecting with other gamers and game designers to share ideas, feedback and lessons learned along the road to publishing.
