I’m honoured to be doing a presentation at this year’s Flash on the Beach. My pres is titled “How to make a game in three minutes“, and will be part of the Elevator Pitch: 3 Minute Wonders session. Why is it called an Elevator Pitch? This is based on the maximum amount of time you’d have in a lift (elevator) to explain an idea to someone. 20 Flash luminaries (new and old) will be quick fire presenting cool ideas, concepts, code, design or latest work. It’s sure to be a (data) blast.
In “How to make a game in three minutes” I will be making a game on the fly. This will incorporate a few topics I’ve been interested in and using heavily, such as colour mapping, collision detection, physics and more. Only three minutes? Yeah, got to prep a few libraries which hopefully I can get ready in time. Certainly I won’t have any time to make mistakes. I’ll post the content here as soon as it is available.
FOTB is a great event. The best conference in the calendar, which every year has the world’s best Flash/Actionscript/Design talent: Mario Klingemann, Andre Michelle, Carlos Ulloa, Joa Ebert, Grant Skinner, Ralph Hauwert, Seb Lee Delise +++ as well as over 1200 delegates.
