We made beautiful music

Last night’s Guitar Hero: World Tour competition and social night was super fun.

Turn-out was a less than normal (just over 20 people – maybe people were intimidated by the music-game-ed-ness of it all), but it didn’t matter one iota.

I’m not sure that any words written here could do it justice, so I’ll just leave it to videos (on our brand new YouTube channel!) and photos.

Here’s a compilation video of how the evening progressed:

And here’s the complete encore performance of the competition winners, Rainbow Stance:

Finally, here are the photos (I was very conscientious to take a lot of photos this time!):

As with all of our events, the primary purpose is always to provide a casual environment for local game developers and enthusiasts to meet, exchange ideas and knowledge, catch-up, and generally just have a good time.

Don’t be afraid that there will be nothing for you to do just because you are planning on entering the competition!

Note: If you are keen to participate in the competition, you can register your band in the comments section (just mention your band name and number of people).
