What: “Game Devs: The Next Generation”
Description: Games, the final frontier. These are the continuing tales of five college students. Their mission: to explore strange new titles, to seek out new genres and platforms, to boldly go where no one has gone before. In this episode, the young developers learn the black art of making a game over eleven weeks at MassDiGI’s Summer Innovation Program. Hear them tell the story of how they met their goals and overcoming giant bugs, terrifying teamwork, diabolical daily builds, stale pizza and zombies.
Featuring a conversation among MassDiGI SIP ’14 alumni Paige Coblentz (RISD), Andrew Krischer (Northeastern), Pat Roughan (WPI), Loren Sherman (MIT) and James Spavold (Becker College) along with MassDiGI’s, Tim Loew and Monty Sharma.
