Our June meeting is Saturday the 15th from 6-10 at Bellevue University.
The plan right now is more show and tell and at least one GDC Vault video. One that I really am recommending that we watch is the following:
Session Name Empowering the Player in a Story-Rich World: Co-Directing Dishonored Speaker(s) Harvey Smith, Raphael Colantonio Company Name(s) Arkane Studios, Arkane Studios Track / Format Design Overview Arkane Studios is a game development house built on a set of principles related to consistent, coherent game systems and world fiction, with the aim of creating spaces that enable the player to improvise and experiment, devising their own solutions to gameplay obstacles. As co-creative directors for Arkane Studios, Raphael Colantonio and Harvey Smith have dedicated themselves to the pursuit of games built on these design principles. Dishonored was Arkane’s opportunity to demonstrate that video games can engage players dramatically through interactive systems in addition to engaging them through the traditional dramatic methods related to story, audio, and visuals.
If you have specific requests for videos, please speak up!
