CS/INFO 4152: Advanced Topics in Computer Game Development

ENGRC Discussion 3
Nondigital Brainstorming

Today's discussion should be spent on two activities, both of which are due very soon. First of all, you should finish up your concept document, which is due this weekend. But more importantly, you should spend time brainstorming ideas for the nondigital prototype. Traci does not have anything to present today, but will help you with this activity should you need her.

Nondigital Prototype

We want you to take the nondigital prototype very seriously. We find that students often struggle with this assignment the most, as it can be hard to discretize your game before you have even finished making it. That is why you should take this time to come up with some ideas and bounce them off the course staff while they are there.

There is nothing else to do for this day -- just brainstorm. See the instructions if you need more guidance about what to do. Next week, we will ask you to reanalyze your nondigital prototype and determine how effective it was.
