I was lucky enough to run into Dave Taylor recently in San Francisco. Dave is a very interesting guy, and a long-time industry veteran. We were chatting yesterday and he passed me this awesome presentation he recently did on how to ship a game in a week. Press play on Dave’s crotch below to watch:
I won’t spoil anything, but the student’s games are frequently funny. There’s some serious talent in that class, perhaps along the lines of Peter Molydeux. I’m not entirely sure if the video really goes into what it takes to make a game in a week, but I think its implicit: Programming, Motherfucker.
Also a quick plug for Band Together, which at the time of writing, is free on the App Store. Band Together is a great game that Dave has put together with his students, based on the class from the video.
