Scenes from the Summer Camp
This video collage captures some of the work and play that we did during the week, from the creation of no-tech games to playing old style video games to listening to visitors to storyboarding to publishing original video games on Gamestar Mechanic. Over the course of just a few days, our gamers published more than 50 games and had almost 100 games in a rough draft development stage. We set up accounts for them to use over the rest of the summer, with hopes that the techniques they learned about in our short time would translate into something bigger.
Who knows ... in a few years, one of these young gamers might emerge with an idea as nutty and as popular as Angry Birds. You just never know when a seed planted is going to bloom, do you?
