UCLA Game Lab + swissnex game making workshop

On April 1-3, 2013, The UCLA Game Lab collaborated with the Swiss Cultural Institute swissnex in a workshop that combined UCLA students with eight students from Geneva and two of their gaming professors.

The workshop involved a game-jam type process with small groups of two or three students. We used the new Game Lab developed tool Arduinity which allows games made in Unity to communicate with the physical world using Arduino. We also crafted some physical props and sculptures that were then used to interact with the digital games.
