Frogs, Dice, and the Art of Computer Game Design

This morning we had an invited speaker (Pang Hartman, Centre class of '97) come present to us about her work (as co-owner, Vice President, and Creative Director)  at FrogDice, a small indie computer game development company based out of Lexington, Kentucky.  She gave an interesting talk, emphasizing some of the benefits of a liberal arts education for game designers.

In the afternoon, I demonstrated the use of the "qtj" (QuickTime for Java) NetLogo extension, and how it can be used to incorporate webcam input into your art piece (on Windows & Mac only, unfortunately).  Then we settled in for some studio time, with students working independently on their final projects.
