When learning to create videogames, students often determine the purpose and storyline of their games based on a simple set of factors- the kinds of games that they enjoy playing themselves. While this can lead to the creation of excellent games that are created out of personal interest and dedication, it can also lead to games which do not have a target end user. To create better games that are both enjoyable for the creator to make and their players to explore, here are three general rules that are helpful to remember in the videogame design process.
The surrealist work of Boston-based fashion/lifestyle photographer Robert Packert combines technical precision with serendipity and motion to create phantasmagorical worlds for models. His narratives are both intimate and moody. Trained as a fine artist, his visual fantasies experiment with new media and layered presentation. His work is widely published in the United States, China and the United Kingdom. The exhibit will be on display through July 15.
