Friday Games 5/13/11 - Super Mecha Giant Robot Inertia

18-meter tall Gundam in Odaiba, Tokyo"You're not gonna believe this, but it was a giant... metal... man." - The Iron Giant (1999)

Mecha. Mobile suits. Armored troopers. Vertical tanks. Giant freakin' robots. This Friday, we'll have a look at how some games turn weightless 3D polygons into hulking, lumbering giants. Specifically, we'll look at inertia: a giant robot at rest tends to stay at rest, a giant robot in motion tends to stay in motion. Combine that with unusual points-of-view, control schemes, and positional play for ten-storey tall experiences.

Join us at 4pm at the Singapore-MIT GAMBIT Game Lab, or watch the live stream at!
