The MIT Game Lab is happy to host the Boston Indies group this August for their monthly meeting. This month features their regular Demo Night
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.
In this workshop, MIT Game Lab design staff Sara Verrilli and Rik Eberhardt will walk participants through best practices for getting useful data and feedback during board game playtest sessions.
Concepts covered include how to be a ‘good’ tester (as a game designer and as a ‘naive’ player), how to interact with your testers, and how to best analyze feedback received from testers.
