Akram is an instructor in the University of Tulsa’s Computer Simulation and Gaming degree program. She also heads up TU’s Computer Simulation and Gaming Conference (CSGC), which is coming up in April!
Even if all you’re capable of is “programmer art,” a good color palette can go a long way toward making your game visually interesting. It can also give you the kick-start you need to get your creative juices flowing. There are lots of great color palette generating websites these days. Here’s a wonderful article giving you a breakdown of some of the best.
If you missed our July meeting, here is the recording. Adam Miller stopped by to tell us all about his game, Lost Cave of the Ozarks, and its successful Kickstarter campaign. Check out the video for all the lessons he learned along the way. (The volume on the video is super low, but it’s all clear. Turn up your volume and you’ll be able to hear it just fine.)
Be sure to check out Adam’s game over at Game Jolt and try out the free demo!
Join us this month for a presentation from Adam Miller, creator of Lost Cave of the Ozarks. Adam will be discussing the game’s successful Kickstarter campaign, lessons learned along the way and, of course, he’ll be showing off his gorgeous game!
