We believe in getting involved and fostering change here at Ghost Story. Since our last Outreach post, members of our team have been busy finding their own ways to make a difference. Here are a few of their stories.
Working with Girls Make Games and Team BlubBlub
Ghost Story members visited Girls Make Games’ Boston camp at MIT this summer. Our lead developers spoke with the girls about different processes in development and how characters are brought to life in the game engine using programming, art, and audio. They detailed examples from BioShock Infinite, including the evolution of Elizabeth.
Visiting the Studio
Junior developers Jordan and Beatrix, two members of Team BlubBlub, came in and spent the day with Ken in the studio. He got to speak with Jordan and Beatrix about their game, “BlubBlub: Quest of the Blob,” and trade development stories.
Last year, Team BlubBlub won the grand prize and best mechanics award at GMG’s third annual demo day in Mountain View, California!
