UW-Stout VR Collaboration with Jim Henson Company
Students from the University of Wisconsin-Stout’s Game Design BFA will present projects resulting from collaboration with the Jim Henson Company to create games inspired by the Farscape Universe. Two teams of eight used Maya and Unity to create 3D environments to be experienced with the Oculus Rift DK2 headsets. After working for two intense weeks, the 16 students flew out to Los Angeles to pitch their projects to the Jim Henson Company, and tour various game and animation studios. The presentation will both serve as a pitch for the game, as well as a play test session with the VR headsets.
Member Project – Exploring networking games with different tools – Vernon Alatorre
Moderately technical with a little bit of how to and some live demos, this presentation is about the experience learning and using some networking tools (Atavism/photon/Unity) and the pros and cons of each. Helpful tips and information about tools, technology and software.
Plug My Thing!
In addition to informal verbal plugs, we’ll also show your trailer, user group, recruitment page, promo video, demo reel, etc. Grab the appropriate ticket – first come, first served.
We’ll be heading to Joe Sensers in Bloomington after the event. Come socialize with other local developers.
Many, many thanks to The Nerdery for hosting IGDATC events over the years.
