Playercentric Game Design

Speaking at our recent Regional Game Dev Summit, University of Tulsa instructor Akram Taghavi-Burris gave a talk on Playercentric Game Design.  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!

We are not alone

Believe it or not, there are a few game development groups near Tulsa. First up, obviously, is Oklahoma Game Developers. They meet regularly in Oklahoma City. Just a few hours east, we have the newly formed Northwest Arkansas Game Developers. And a few more hours northeast is the St Louis Game Developer Co-op. The St. Louis folks even have their own YouTube channel (see above). It’s worth keeping an eye on (and so is ours!).

All of these groups are super friendly, and it’s worth reaching out to say hello. Makes some friends, and make some games!
