LMG Visits Trinity High School

LMG Visits Trinity High School

I recently had the opportunity to represent LMG at my alma mater, Trinity High School in Louisville, and gave a talk to the Video Game Theory and Analysis class. We took thirty minutes to recreate a stripped-down version of a Ludum Dare 35 entry, Element Undesired, created by myself and LMG board member, Cara Smith. In the Q&A session, I was reminded yet again that the largest barrier to entry in game development is still simply not knowing where to start. Look for more resources on that topic at LMG soon.

Here’s the full scratch port of the original LD35 game, along with the class demo.
