On Wednesday, Sept 26th, the DHN is hosting a Lightning Lunch on "Games and Play" from 12pm - 2pm in the DCS Innovation Lab. I've arranged for all of you to have access to the event, which overlaps our class by an hour. After the session is done, we'll complete our lesson with the group matching session. If the weather cooperates, we can even run this outside.
The DCS Innovation Lab (DCSIL for short) is on the second floor of the Gerstein Library at 9 King's College Circle (see map). If you can't make it for 2pm, we'll see you there at 1pm instead. Either way, get your tickets here.
For those who miss the first class or just need a reminder of what's happening on the weekend, the game jam activity is taking place on Saturday, September 15th in the Bahen Centre, room 3200 (the Great Hall). It will start from 10am and run to about 4pm, with pizza lunch supplied for all who come.
During this session, you'll be making a game from start to finish, so bring a laptop that you would be able to develop on later in the course. You should have one of the game design tools installed on it (see the Links page for a few suggestions), and should complete enough tutorials to have a basic sense of how the tool works.
We'll start at 10am sharp with introductions and group formations, so aim to be there at 10, ready to go!
