Anyone that lives in and around the Austin area – primarily members of the IGDA (International Game Developers Association), but they may well be welcoming fresh faces – can meet up with Mike McShaffry and Dustin Dobson of Red Fly Studios to hoist a beer and talk about the making of their Wii version of Ghostbusters: The Video Game.
IGDA-Austin’s Official April Event:
Ghostbusters Wii: The Post-DeathMortem
Presented by Mike McShaffry and Dustin Dobson of Red Fly Studios
In January of 2007, three accomplished artists and one designer set out to carve a niche for themselves in the lonely city of Austin. This was a time of strife within the games industry when giants all around this noble city were falling and being crushed under their own weight. Two years later, Red Fly would become one of the leading third party developers within the Austin games industry. Ghostbusters on the Wii was pivotal to this new established identity for the studio and its body of approximately 80 employees.
This is the origin story… of a haunted game…. and the takeaways from its development that will shatter your soul!
