Class 12 – 11/28/18; “The Future of Video Games” + “Game On: Become the Most Profitable Developers” + “Concilliations & Conclusions”
For reasons that as I understand it cannot be explained other than by “the Ghost in the Machine”, the video of this very fun class is not available. The Lecture Capture equipment ended recording another classroom. In a strange way, this may be better – as this particular class may well live on to be romanticized beyond what is reasonable. Certainly it will be in my mind, and speaking personally, I have no problem with that. However to ground us in at least some semblance of what actually happened as we weave our individual narratives, the actual slides are attached…. 😉
Slides and video below. Unfortunately there is another unexplained video outage (still being investigated by UBC IT) part way through, but audio and slides are still there, and in reality that’s what is really needed.
Note that in “Mobile Gaming” slides there is a part that there was not time for during the presentation about kids mobile games and COPPA violations in the US that you may find interesting.
Video and slides below. Sorry that the slides had to be split into 3 parts, the last two of which being the loot box section. That was even after culling the loot box section to really center on the Battlefront narrative, as that focuses the storytelling better without missing any essential components.
