The MIT Game Lab is spending January obsessed with arcade games!
A 1-week lecture and workshop series kicks off a month-long game jam to create games for arcade cabinets installed at the MIT Museum and in the faculty offices of MIT's Comparative Media Studies | Writing department. This lecture series will examine the culture of the Arcade, the relationship between software and hardware design and the creative work produced for arcade machines, and how to design short, moment-based gameplay. A workshop follows each lecture to put these ideas into practice.
Sponsor(s): Comparative Media Studies/Writing
