Meeting: Brian Urbanek on Matching Theme and Mechanics in Game Design (Summary)

May 19, 2010

Edit: Sorry, Action's video won't actually be posted, since he requested that no video be taken. I didn't realize!

Things that happened

Brian gave an awesome presentation. Seriously, it was so great! Speaking personally, it enabled me to solve like ten design problems in one game alone, and it gave me a lot of food for thought for future and past games. Speaking impersonally, everyone I talked to loved it too, so you don't have to take my word for it.

Also, Kristopher's "Stability" won! A poll was conducted on our Facebook page and his entry got the most votes.

Things that will happen

Videos of Brian's and Action's presentations will be posted. Stay tuned!
Edit: Sorry, there won't actually be a video of Action's presentation.

Kristopher will get a yoyo with a Microsoft logo on it for winning, and all the participants of the budget crisis challenge will get an Xbox 360 game. We figured there'd be enough participants for there to be both winners and losers…

I'm sorry

This post is awfully short in proportion to how long I procrastinated writing it. :O
