Re: [games_access] intimate controllersHi,

Interesting idea (teaching). I've been doing a 2 hour-lesson or two per year for my game design students on the subject (well, aside from the audio games lesson), but which was really really basic. But: what would such a session constitute of? Get to learn how to teach GA? Or: get to learn what to teach OF GA?

Greets,

Richard

And convince Noah too. :) The last I heard both Ernest and Sheri were going to actually develop their games too so if Noah for some reason declines, then you could ping the other two.


You know...just thinking some more here, it'd be interesting to have a session on TEACHING game accessibility. I'm sure that there's more than enough of us here that could pull together an interesting session for the education part of GDC.


Just throwing around ideas here. Stop me before we get to twenty proposals. ;)

Mmm.... maybe I can convince the HKU to do Noah's game then ... next friday ;)

Interesting...


Did I mention that Brenda Brathwaite is going to help out my class this fall as we take her game from Idol (yes, the accessible adults only sex game) and make it into a reality (oh...the Illinois Board of Trustees is gonna love THIS! hehehe)? We'll be using the Torque engine. Maybe we should have a bigger Torque session at GDC since we'll have the game and then the [cc] stuff plus maybe more. The advantage...we can use sex in the title. :D

Hi,



Good idea (this project) but why oh why ... PONG?? There are currently several of these projects going on, ranging from bluetooth hug-tshirts to the USB dildo's, and this is one of the very few to incorporate a game. I think it is a very bad idea to have chosen Pong for this, it's like playing 2 games at once... mmm, I'll forward it to my professor, who still wants to design a peniscontrollor.



Greets,



Richard (first impression)...
