Upcoming PGU Talks!

"Understanding Game FX" with VFX Artist Su - Wednesday, 1/20 @ 6PM

Have you every wondered what game FX and VFX entails? How does it compare to VFX in film? Then this is for you! Su will tell us everything about making real-time particle effects. Learn about Pocket Gems' very own particle editor, and how we can use it to make everything from fire to smoke to rain!

Other Upcoming Office Events

Gemmer Lunch Out - Friday, 1/15 @ 12PM

Want to meet some people that you don't get to work with on a daily basis? Been dying to try that sushi-burrito hybrid that you've passed by every morning on your walk to work?

Our monthly experience in eating lunch outside of the office, commonly called GLO, is happening Friday, 12/18. If you haven't attended GLO recently (or ever!), we highly encourage you to check it out! It's a great way to get to know Gemmers you haven't had the chance to meet yet, or to reconnect with someone you may have worked with previously.

(If you'd like to opt-out of GLO for this month, use the link below!)

Yoga with Sammie returns! - Tuesday, 1/19 and Thursday, 1/28 @ 7PM

Newcomers always welcome! We meet in the Back Office at 7pm on Yoga nights.

Chair Massages - Wednesday, 1/20
