If the students will be working in teams and need a tool to track who is
doing what, or for tracking bugs through the development process, please
feel free to use Squish (www.squishlist.com <http://www.squishlist.com/>
). It's web-based, easy to set-up (no software installation), and easy
to use. The free trial is 4 months which should be long enough for a
semester, and is full featured. If you think you would need the account
longer, I'm sure we could extend the free trial period.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Hey there, everyone. As you may know, I have been involved in the
development of the game design curriculum at Parsons in NYC. Things have
been growing steadily, and we're going to be offering Game Design 2 for
the first time next semester.
The focus of this class is level design, and I'm hoping that the class
will prepare students for professional level design work by having them
spend the semester building levels for a variety of games. So my hope is
to have a number of level editing ready games available for school use.
In light of this, I have two questions for the list:
1) Do you know of any good free or cheap, perhaps online, games that
have level editors? Preference goes to simple-to-use editors that have
some kind of save functionality, such that levels can be worked on
outside of class and viewed in it.
2) Does anyone have anything that they've worked on that they would be
interested in donating to Parsons for this purpose? Any old, forgotten
games with decent editing tools lying around? Aside from the joy of
fostering the next generation of designers, you'll get to see a pool of
prospective hires actually working with your tools.
Feel free to reply to me directly on #2. #1 I think might make an
interesting list topic.
Thanks in advance,
