Our Game Designer Speaks at Pratt!
Noelle dispensing wisdom!
Our award-winning game designer, Noelle Posadas, gave a lecture yesterday at her alma mater to about two dozen current and former Pratt Institute students.
Noelle detailed a bit about her past year with Killer Snails which included coming up with the idea for Biome Builder, play testing it with hundreds of students at locations ranging from the American Museum of Natural History to the New York Hall of Science before launching it on Kickstarter.
One of the most important pieces of advice according to audience members were “what makes a good educational game is that the mechanics lead to learning”.
The center for career resources at Pratt live-streamed the talk which will be available on their site next week here and we highly recommend it to all!
