Do you want to make a game? Do you want to know if you and your friends can make a game? This webinar is going to introduce game production, which is a mixture of business and creativity, art and technology, work and fun. Game production usually involves a team with more than one in-house person, and several outsourced helpers. The team consists of multiple roles, like designers, story-tellers, programmers, musicians, testers, promoters, and community managers, to work together to finish and ship a game. Yang Jing, an award-winning game designer, will introduce the above game making process and share with us her experience in developing independent video games. We can learn about the joy of game playing, the inside stories of indie game industry, and the process of game development.
