Okay, first the big news:
Interview with the writers!
Sam informed the GameTech participants that, in two weeks, on 06 May, we will be doing a Q&A with two of the writers of the Portal series:
The Portal series manages to combine FPS and puzzle gameplay; you use a teleportation gun to create portals within a space in order to reach the goal. The series has been praised for its hilarious and intelligent writing. The two Portal games have sold over 8 million copies in total!
We’ll be talking to Erik Wolpaw:
And we’ll be talking to Jay Pinkerton (click the writers’ photo for another interview):
Next week, we’ll spend a bit of time thinking about what we can ask these masters of video game writing!
Karim and Reshawn’s Pokémon reviews
Meanwhile, Karim and Reshawn – big-time Pokémon fans – ranked the best Pokémon games.
The 4 most awesome Pokemon games are:
- Leaf Green
- Heart Gold & Silver
- Black 2
Reshawn votes for Crystal because it brings back memories. His favorite part was the final battle against Red. Karim says the gameplay in these ones is more addicting because of their additional features.
RPG Maker VX Ace
Lastly, Andre and Alex have been working on some RPG games, and producing REALLY mind-blowing work. Hopefully, they’ll be ready, willing, and able to demo their progress next week…
