Playcrafting empowers the game development community through education, networking and collaboration. We offer workshops, classes and events for game developers and those aspiring to make games in topics including game design, programming, art, business and more.
I couldn't find the class, the location was very vague in the description. No one answered when I tried to contact them to find out where it was. Total waste of time.
The instructor was great and I was able to learn a lot. Unfortunately, in the class description there was no mention to bring your laptop which made it difficult to follow.
Waste of time and money. The teacher was completely unprepared. The class barely even touched on the supposed theme of "learning to design socially meaningful and artistic games" - the teacher instead wasted the first half hour on explaining extremely basic visual concepts like how curvy lines versus straight lines might make you feel... how circles are the opposite of triangles, etc., using a basic PowerPoint presentation she said she found somewhere online, and then showing us a couple of clips on YouTube that vaguely demonstrated some of these principles. Why? I've no idea. She did eventually begin to show us two examples of "serious games," but had to cut both demos short because her iPad was running low on battery. She did not provide meaningful commentary on either game, or mention what lessons might be learned.
The instructor was great! I enjoyed the exercises and the examples given. I left the class feeling very confident in knowing how to apply these tips and methods in my own writing projects.
Thank you for the insightful class and fun practices. Dio
Our instructor was great! Very knowledgeable and good at explaining all the concepts he covered. This was also a good interactive course (not a lecture) with plenty of activities and chances to discuss. I'd definitely take another course from this teacher again.
The best class at PC so far
Great info, with a lot of heavy material packed into a short time. I think this was the teacher's first time teaching and he was not as prepared as he could have been, but we all start somewhere. Overall I was happy with what we learned.
It was okay. The instructor was obviously very passionate about Pixel art. The class was basically him giving a presentation. It was a little boring but very informative.
I liked the class and found it useful to being making gifs I also learned of several new useful tools to make them. I would recommend that it's included attendees should bring a laptop with Photoshop. I know it may seem like an obvious requirement, but I aware of this until I arrived at the class.
