Eventbrite - MN VR and HCI Feb 2015: GGJ Post-mortems

Global Game Jam 2015 VR and HCI project post-mortems and interaction design discussion

We had five(!) projects at the local 48-hour Global Game Jam with VR and/or unique HCI. Projects can be viewed and downloaded at http://globalgamejam.org/2015/jam-sites/gamecraft-umn-glitch-and-igdatc/games

We’re going to do post-mortems on at least 4 of these projects: The focus will be on VR/HCI interaction design aspects of the project. We’ll also be sharing lessons learned about workflow, debugging and tuning/playtest tips.

SmartThings is on the 3rd floor above The Bulldog NE.  Go through the glass door and up 3 flights of stairs.  Please plan for traffic and parking so you can arrive before the door locks at 7, or we’ll be running up and down those stairs a whole lot.  There is street and lot parking all around the building.  The nearest ramp is a block away by Ginger Hop.

Schedule:

6:30 Social and setup
7:00 Various
8:30 Typical wrap up
After, we’ll head to one of the many great bars within a block.
