We've got an unusual Friday Games this week. Local developer Firehose, itself started by ex-GAMBIT folks, is going to drop by and talk a little bit about the development of their new PSN game Slam Bolt Scrappers.
Slam Bolt went through several iterations before arriving at its final design. Sharat Bhat, one of the GAMBIT alums who worked on Slam Bolt, will be be coming to the lab to show some of early, rejected prototype mechanics for the game and discuss why/how they were changed.
If you'd like to see how radically a game can change from initial concept to final polish, come by the GAMBIT lounge Friday at 4pm, where Sharat will be showing some early builds before we all play the final version.
