This week we are going to continue to focus on familiarizing ourselves with the tools in recommend you use by making a Hello World 2 game. To do this I recommend you either take the other tool and giving it a try or diving deeper by following one of the more advanced tutorials. As usual, the prototype is due by the start of next class Feb. 6 at 7:00PM.
Try and have fun with this one and show me a bit of your game design skills. Don’t be afraid to go beyond the tutorial and add some things or play with it a bit.
I forgot to mention it in class, but I also have a reading I would like you to take a look at. We’ll go over it a bit briefly in class next week, so please be familiar with it. It’s a write up on creativity, and you can find it here or on the readings page.
It also would not be a bad idea to take a look at some of the news that is being generated by Spry Fox suing 6Waves LOLAPPS over their apparent copying of Triple Town. We’ll probably take the opportunity to talk about copyrights since its a timely topic at the moment and we have a great example of what appears to be copyright infringement (Triple Town vs. Yeti Town).
