On Tuesday, November 30, the Game Lab is partnering with the International Game Developers Association to host a lecture by Mark Cerny. Mark Cerny is an important figure in the American video game industry, having worked on classic titles like Marble Madness and Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and now owning Cerny Games and working as a consultant in the industry.
Video games have changed at a dizzying pace over the last decades, and not just in team size and budget. What is a “good” game? What constitutes “best” practices? What was true yesterday is not necessarily true tomorrow! Mark will speak on the history of the
videogame industry — at least the parts he’s seen personally — and how it informs the future.
This event takes place on Tuesday, November 30, at 6:30pm in the EDA (Experimental Design Arts) in the Broad Center at UCLA.
