Wanna Splice some DNA?

Wanna Splice some DNA?

The past few months I have been working on a new video blog called GMVR. It's a gaming channel that's not trying to redefine anything, just have fun with my depressed friend on Mondays. The worst days ever, now get a little better. So here we are playing Nanocrafter.org. It's a free to play puzzle game that teaches a better understanding about convalescent stands and such. I'm still not sure what we were doing though. But it was fun! Have a try yourself and see how far you can get.

250 GAME DESIGN STUDENTS SO FAR

THE FIRST 250 STUDENTS of 1,000 HAVE SIGNED UP!

It looks like I might just make my goal of 1,000 students by the end of October. Today there are just over 250 students that have signed up and are taking my new Basics of Game Design course online. As a promotion, I've been offering the first waves of students that sign up, big discounts.

Does this mean you missed the early bird discount? Apparently other sites are starting to pick up on the course, and are linking to affiliate discounts. This means that there are still some 90% OFF for the first 150 codes still available. Make sure to sign up as there are not many left before the discount goes from 90% to 75% off.

Learn the basics of Game Design in a day

Gamification has become a very hot topic for many companies, startups and organizations. Most people want to learn some basics of game design to help them with creating better applications, platforms and services. Wouldn't it be great if you could do a crash course to learn the basics of Game Design?

Many of you know that I have been teaching New Media and Game Design at the HKU for many years now ...

PowerPoint Karaoke

http://blog.foreignpolicy.com/files/images/ppt_karaoke_0_0.png Have you played PowerPoint Karaoke yet? Ok this is one for the real nerds and geeks. The rules are simple. 1. Have a powerpoint or slideshow that no one knows yet. 2. A presentor tries to present the Powerpoint or Slideshow and make a coherent (and often humoruos) presentation. 3. (Optional) Presentor must take a shot after every second slide or other interval for drinking game varioation.

I first saw this played at Kinnernet09. I realised this is an excellent game to use in my presentation techniques course at the HKU. Unfortunately there is a lack of powerpoints created for Powerpoint Karaoke. so I had my students make a bunch of them. Here is a whole slew of free Karaoke presenations that you can use with your friends or co-workers that they made. Just click on one of the links and start playing.
