What I learned from Alice

Posted: Thursday, November 1st, 2007 @ 6:45 pm in Uncategorized | 2 Comments »

I had a lot of fun learning how to use the program Alice. If someone told me that I was going to learn how to program I would think that that would be boring, but when you use Alice, you don’t even realize you’re learning.  I like how simple the interface is so it’s easy […]

It took me awhile to decide what type of animation I wanted to do for this project. Alice has such a wide variety of objects and characters to use, It was hard to decide even on a genre of game. I finally decided on an adventure role-playing game in the fantasy genre. The game follows […]

One of my favorite computer games is Warcraft III. It is a real time strategy game that takes place in a fantasy world called Azeroth. One of the reasons I like this game is because it has such a complex and interesting story. This is the third game in the Warcraft series, so the world […]

I am now a member of three groups in Second life. The names of the groups are World of Warcraft Players, Welfare Presidents, and Harry Potter Book 7 Chat Group.  I joined these groups because they had to do with my interests. I joined the World of Warcraft group because I play that game and […]

I found this documentary to be very informative and interesting. i never really knew very much about the history of video games except that pong was the first game (and i didn’t even know about all the controversy and lawsuits associated with pong). I found it fascinating to watch the progression of the videogames and […]
