Student handbook for the ETC class that started August 28 2023.
I’m Mong-Yah “Max” Hsieh, currently a graduate student in the Master of Entertainment Technology program at Carnegie Mellon University, where I’m learning the secrets of successful entertainment experiences.
As early as I was in elementary school, I’ve been getting the feeling that the games that I was playing can be changed to suit me, and I’ve messed around with the text files in Little Fighters 2 and Medieval: Total War before I learned that what I was doing is called “modding”. Nowadays, I spend most of my free time with games made by Paradox Interactive, including Crusader Kings II and Hearts of Iron IV.
