I’ve finally committed to write my first essay in English! Since French is my mother tongue I hope readers will be tolerant about my total lack of syntax sense :). Back in university I was interested about the theory of flow and recently I decided to see how it applied to video games. It appears Jenova Chen’s FlOw game is an essai to apply this theory so I decided to use it as a base for my own essay:
Flow and Difficulty Dajustment in Video Games…
Recently I attended a game design contest has an acompagnator for a team of 4 colleagues. www.bivouacurbain.com
The goal of the competition ws to create a game in 36h on the theme of “Antithesis”My team produced an nice project called “Handy Hand – Color Cappers” based on the oposition of black&white versus color.
Unfortunately, there where some major bugs in the last version so it’s not functional. 😦
Nevertheless, it was a nice experience. Rapid Iteration Prosess (rip) has the potential of challenging ideas quickly by making mistakes as soon as possible.
I was Game Designer for the port of the DS game My Stop Smoking Coach with Allen Carr and My Weight Loss Coach DS to the ITouch/IPhone platform.
Doing game ports to the iPhone is very interesting since this device is only starting to show it’s potential has a video game console.
I’m looking forward to see the evolution of this new way of playing into people’s everyday life.
