Why are you studying games?
Because of LOVE!
Describe your most embarrassing playtesting moment.
There was one time that I was testing the multiple interactive techniques we applied in a 2d platform game, and the playtester gives us a fairly philosophical question: "What's the meaning of your game?" It took me a while to understand that he was not sarcasm, and took me a longer while to really come up with an answer.No idea that you will encounter philosophical question in playtests. But there are all kinds of players.
What's your secret weapon?
I'm good looking. No, I'm serious.This is a secret weapon because nobody ever know it. Perfectly secret.
How has the Game Center changed your thinking about games?
It changes my ideas towards game by providing me the most powerful weapon on earth : Words. Now I can really see things and think things, comparing to my previous status of vaguely sensing something.By means of most powerful weapon, I've already exclude A-bomb.
What do you hope to accomplish after school?
