From 1pm to 4pm, students from CMS.611J/6.073J Creating Video Games will set up their final semester projects for public play in Lobby 10, right under MIT's Great Dome.
This past Spring, students were challenged to design games with the themes "Mexican Standoff" and "Australia". The teams responded with a large variety of projects, including iOS apps, text adventures, multiplayer games and single-player games.
Creating Video Games is an MIT class that introduces students to the complexities of working in small, multidisciplinary teams to develop video games. The joint Computer Science/Comparative Media Studies class covers creative design and production methods, stressing design iteration and regular testing across all aspects of game development (design, visual arts, music, fiction, and programming).
