Presenters: Elaine Russell – Project Manager Dare to be Digital, & Dan Allan
– Team member from 2014’s “A Fox that I Drew” team. Their game Baum has just had a world-wide release on App store (online).
Discussion on the requirements for setting up a team to enter the Dare to be Digital game development competition and how to go about putting a 5 minute video pitch together. The competition requires teams of programmers, graphics artists and audio engineers to come together as a cohesive team.
To apply one must submit a short video pitch of the idea the team intends to develop for the game. One can see several examples of previous pitches available in a blog post (online). Another blog post of interest asks the question of “What qualities makes a game popular” (online).
