Interested in game design? This weekend, we feature a set of four interactive lectures: games that are about game design, by Pixelate.
Play the Games
Bub and Bob, two little 8-bit guys, will talk you through the basic concepts of video games. The games themselves are more like interactive tutorials, with smaller games interspersed throughout to help make certain points, and great chiptunes throughout.
The first episode deals with rules, interactivity, representation, and simulation in games.
The second episode is about motivating the player to stay in the game, and making sure they have fun.
The third episode looks at one of my favourite topics: learning in video games.
Finally, the fourth episode is about identification.
