Overview: A team of four grad students from Carnegie Mellon University locked themselves in a room with 3 rules: 1. Each game must be made in less than seven days, 2. Each game must be made by exactly one person, 3. Each game must be based around a theme like gravity, vegetation, swarms, etc. This is the aftermath. From the whirlwind Experimental Gameplay Project that lovingly brought you TOWER OF GOO and SUBURBAN BRAWL, this session is a giant collection of bite-size tips, tricks, and demos showing how anyone can prototype a ton of games and features in no time at all.
