Welcome to a new semester of Rapid Prototyping for Digital Games (ATEC 4367). I’m looking forward to a great semester filled with lots of great prototypes.
First of all, I want to turn your attention to the resource page, where everything you need to get started is located. I have provided links to all of my recommended game creation tools along with some tutorials to help you get started on your journey. You can also find the class syllabus there or simply click on this link to download it.
Your first assignment (The Hello World Game) is due by 7:00 PM on September the 6th in the comments section of this blog post. If you post the prototype and don’t see the post show up right away, don’t freak out. I have to approve new posters so it might take a minute or two.
Your first reading assignment can be found on the Readings page or by clicking this link. It’s a post done by the original Experimental Gameplay Project team that this class is based off of and should shed some light on why some of the processes are the way they are. Have this read by the beginning of class next week and be ready to discuss it.
Please have some questions prepared about the tools you are using. This semester I want to try and answer as many questions as I can, but I can’t help if you don’t ask!
