Since August, the MIT Game Lab has been developing a game about real estate entrepreneurship and socially responsible development for the Samuel Tak Lee MIT Real Estate Entrepreneurship Lab. This past April, Sara Verrilli and I visited China to test our game with undergraduate students in urban planning, architecture, real estate development, and landscaping. We also wanted to get a sense of the scale of real estate development currently in progress there. Our first stop was in Hohhot, at the Inner Mongolia University of Technology.
The MIT-Shenkar Summer Game Development Workshop has four games in early development this summer that are in need of your feedback! We invite everyone – young, old, MIT community, game playing, game developing, or even never touched a video game before in your life – to come, play our games, and give us the feedback we need to complete our games by the end of July.
The MIT Game Lab, MIT Education Arcade, and “Shenkar – Engineering. Art. Design” (of Tel Aviv, Israel) are partnering up this summer to run a Game Development Summer Workshop!
We are hiring current MIT or Wellesley undergrads, eligible for an MIT UROP, to participate in the workshop and to make video games with us!
