3G Studios was just named one of the best Nevada companies to work for by Nevada Business Magazine! Our company culture is so important to us, and we’re so proud and honored that it’s being recognized again this year. Thank you Nevada Business Magazine! Read about us and other companies who made the list here:
Tomorrow is our second annual office trip to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo! We’ve all got our eyes on you, new Superman ride. Have a great day at the office tomorrow everyone.
Thank you so much to everyone who came out to NCET's Tech Wednesday last night. We’re very happy to have been able to host the event, and thank you so much to Dave Archer and everyone else over at NCET for letting us. If you couldn’t make it, please take the time to attend a future Tech Wednesday because it’s such a great way to discover everything else going on in our tech community here in Northern Nevada!
Two pieces of business this post: first, we are proud to be hosting the Nevada Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology’s monthly Tech Wednesday event at our office next Wednesday, August 8th. NCET is an amazing resource for the tech community in Nevada, and we’re very happy to help support them. We will have demos of some of the projects we’re working on, so if you’re curious what we’ve been up to, stop by! Admission is a bit more for non-NCET members, so take this opportunity to join!
Second, we have video from James’s panel at Casual Connect in case you weren’t able to make it to the conference:
Any of you going to be in Seattle next week for the Casual Connect or IGDA Summit gaming conferences? James is speaking on a panel tackling the convergence of casual and real money gaming for Casual Connect on Tuesday, July 24th! The panel will take place from 10am – 11am at the Olympic Fairmont Hotel. Hopefully some of you can make it!
Ryan Cullins, our Chief Creative Officer and Larry Crapo, our VP of Sales & Business Development spoke at a summer school class teaching video game design at Hunsberger Elementary this week! They gave a presentation and were available to answer any questions the sixteen students enrolled in the course had about making video games. Why weren’t courses this awesome around when we were still in school? News 4 coverage of their stop can be found here:
KTVN Channel 2 News is having James on their “Someone to Know” segment with Kristen Remington today. We sure love all this media attention! Hopefully a video of the coverage will follow.
Our CEO James appeared yesterday on the program Nevada Newsmakers! Thank you so much to Sam Shad for having James on the program and giving him a chance to discuss some of the exciting things we’ve got going on both in Nevada and here at 3G Studios. You can find a video of the segment here:
The warriors faced off on the field of battle this past Friday, and Understand.com proved the victor. An early 3G lead was dashed in the third inning, and despite a valiant late-game comeback strike mounted by team 3G, the Understand.com troops sealed their victory. In all honesty though, thank you so much to the wonderful people over at Understand.com for helping make this happen and playing in the sunshine with us on a beautiful summer day. Thank you to everyone with the Reno Aces who made using their amazing stadium possible, to Chris Payne for DJing and announcing the game, to Rich Valiquette for singing the National Anthem as well as being a referee, to Duffy’s Ale House for hosting our after party, to our friends at The Abbi Agency for helping to get the word out, to any of you who came out to watch us, and of course to our 3G team for giving it their all out there! We may have lost (this time), but we are more than happy to put our money where our mouth is and donate that $1,000 to the Veteran’s Guest House.
Our kickball match against Understand.com is today! Admission is still free, so come on down to the Reno Aces stadium and enjoy this beautiful day with us! Each company is playing for $1,000 toward the charity of their choice. Understand.com is playing for the Veteran’s Guest House, and 3G is playing for Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Northern Nevada. We’ve been training and practicing drills, so Understand.com better be bringing their check book! Go 3G!
