You remember that Unite talk (What Makes Great Games Great)? After that, I did a bit at a Unity Meetup, which is how I met the nice folks over at Laguna College of Art and Design. Which of course, is how I got drafted for my first professor gig! This fall I've been busy teaching teaching GA500 - Game Design Mechanics. It's been hard, and at the same time, absolutely wonderful! The small size allows the master's level class to go into amazing depth. It's not just a gloss over of flow and simplicity, we go into EVERYTHING. They've been deconstructing games, playing games, and of course, designing their own - turns out it's easier to learn the material than put it into practice! I've met so many of you digitally that it'd be fun to take it face-to-face. And, since it's a remote skype program, it's open to anyone, anywhere. Check out this interview. And hope to see you next fall! Gigi PS - yes, I still make games for a living full time. This is extra-credit, a bit of giving back and also pushing myself. Try, Improve, Repeat.
