Part II of my GDAM article Motivating Players in an Engaging Way  has been featured in the February edition of the IGDA Newsletter Perspectives. The release of the newsletter had been announced at the IGDA webboard a week ago.

You can view the February issue here. My article is on pages 8-9.

I’m very happy with this and I hope I get a few more articles selected in the future!

Global Game Jam: The best thing that can happen to you!

Gazimagusa had a great first time at the Global Game Jam this year! A group of 15 people spent more than 48 hours at the Green Hall Complex of the Eastern Mediterranean University to come together and engage into the most exciting thing on earth: making games!

Our event was aired via ustream for the entire 48 hours. Despite being our first ever participation in a game jam, the organization was flawless and no problem has been reported. Three teams were formed during the process, and one team was able to finish their game in time.

It was a great event and we are looking forward to the GGJ 2011!!!
