On Friday, March 3rd, the Serious Games Meetup Group convenes again in LY122, for a very special opportunity: learn to build a game environment!
BJ Blazkowicz is an American spy of Polish decent, and protagonist of the Wolfenstein 3D computer game ( id Software, 1992). His goal in the game is to fight the Nazis behind enemy lines and save the world from their evil. The game is considered to be the starting point of the First-Person Shooter (FPS) genre which is still dominating the game industry today. PJ Moskal is a Polish-American faculty in the DMA program who will conduct a workshop on how to build a FPS game prototype (minus the shooting) that could be utilized for educational purposes such as architectural visualizations, training applications, and others. In this one hour workshop, on Friday, March 3 at 10:30 AM in LY122, you will build a basic structure of a FPS game using Unity game engine – no knowledge of programming is required. Bring your own computer with Unity installed (free download at www.unity3d.com/download ) or use a lab computer.
