My final year in USC’s interactive media graduate program has begun. In the USC program, the final year is spent working on a single project. While I had to pivot on my previous thesis idea (I loved it, but it lacked a solidified core mechanic), the new thesis game is solid, has a fixed mechanic, and is scoped without a threat of feature creep. I’ll tweet and post WIP shots of the new project as they come along. In other news, I began this academic year on the right foot and am very optimistic about completing my challenge!
