Description: Have you ever been playing a game and thought to yourself, “I wonder what it takes to make something like this?” If so, this is the Brain Boost for you! In this session we will discuss what happens at the intersection of Adam’s career at NASA and game design, game jams and the role they play in the indie game dev community, and the Unity game design engine.
Then we’ll open the floor for discussion. Have you ever participated in a game jam? What roles can non-programmers play in the design and development of games? How does game theory help boost creativity in other fields? What’s your experience?
