Our good friend and Visiting Scholar, Anthony Daniels, spent a few days with us this week. He spoke to all the students in an informal Q&A session and then spent over an hour with each team learning about their projects, play testing, and giving valuable feedback.

Twenty students are joining us this semester to work on four projects; nineteen are second year students who will be graduating in June.

The projects are all in different areas: one on the Connected TV with EA’s Office of the Chief Creative Officer, one using Occipital’s Stucture Sensor to create a practical AR application for iOS devices, one developing for the Internet of things, and one using Autodesk’s Dreamcatcher project to explore generative design using games.

Visit from Anthony Daniels

Our good friend Anthony Daniels spent the day with us. After our Monday morning all-hands meeting, Anthony shared a bit about Episode VII (sorry – no secrets or spoilers were revealed) and opened the floor for a discussion about acting, teaching, and saying yes to every opportunity. After lunch he visited each team, playing their early prototypes and providing ideas and input to make them better.

It’s a new school year, and we’re kicking off this semester with ten students in Silicon Valley. Their two teams will develop a connected TV game for Electronic Arts and a mixed reality project on the Project Tango tablets.

Stone Librande’s Game Design Class

Stone Librande (stonetronix.com) is teaching his Game Design class for us again this semester. Six of our current students are taking the class as an elective, and three of our alums are spending their Saturdays with the group, too. The class is half lecture and learning, and half making and playing.

This photo was taken after the first class where everyone worked together to create a game played in rolling chairs around a conference room table. The final rules are on the white board after having been written, tested, changed and rewritten many times. Lots of fun and a bit tired from all the rolling.
