10/14/2013 - Orange U. Blue Postmortem, and the alternate reality game SPY

We started the meeting by announcing the new three-week competition, which starts today. We spent a good amount of time talking about the rules of the competition and how the submission process works.

Then at 7:15, Livio started his presentation about one of his old game projects, Orange U. Blue. This game was made for the club's previous three-week game competition, and the talk went over what went right and what went wrong with the project. It's a good example of what a small, first game project looks like.

Then at 27:00, Dylan started talking about SPY, which is an alternate reality game where you take on the role of a secret agent and you try to complete missions throughout your everyday life. It's intended to be played on college campuses, and much of the game is focused on trying to figure out who's a spy (who's playing the game) and who isn't. We learned about the game when we were contacted by the lead developer of the game, and you can play the game for free if you register on the game's website with your university email address.
