Mentorship finished product

Today is the first time we had a chance to play with the finished game pieces since they were on display at the school board for a week. Overall I’m really impressed with what he was able to accomplish. We taught him the basics of graphic design principles and showed him how to use them to create card layouts but everything beyond that was his creativity at work. He made most of what you see in the picture below in a week, while doing homework and preparing for a math fair. Very impressive indeed! We were not able to finish everything in time so we improvised with Lego. Over the next few weeks we plan to work with him to refine a few systems that need a bit more work and to generate more game objects.

Thank you Eric, (and Lanz) for all the work and effort you put into this mentorship. Alzen loved presenting the game to the Game Developers Club and keeps talking about how much fun that was. And how successful his play testing went. It looks like fun was had all around. He is playing with the Cats Tale game Lanz presented and he loved the Big Fish game. We might be coming to your club in the future if that is Ok. Maybe we will figure out a faster way to get there.
