Darren surprised us one day by sharing an Atari-inspired adventure game (complete with collision detection!) on the forums. We’re very excited to learn about the new games he’s porting to Hype at the conference, and hearing about upcoming courses in game design he’s spearheading for his students in Saint Paul:
Tell me a bit about yourself and what brought you to Hype:
What’s most exciting about your job or projects you’re working on?
Can you share a hint about what you’ll be talking about at the conference?
My focus for the last year and half has been to recreate some of the games I grew up with within a web environment. My motivation came from platforms like the Atari 2600, the original Nintendo Entertainment System and various 1980’s coin operated games. Plus, I took some inspiration after reading “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline.
Anything else you might want to share with attendees about yourself?
Check out some of the retro games my students and I have created over at: http://www.darrenscorner.com/portfolio/hype/
Meet Darren and more speakers & attendees at the Hype Conference on October 8th.
