Ian Schreiber’s New Summer School

Prof. Schreiber is teaching a new free (or paid, depending upon what you want to get out of it) course again this summer:

This is Ian Schreiber writing (yes, I’m still around, even if I haven’t posted here in awhile). For those of you who were following this last summer, I ran a free online course on game design. It was a fun time.

I’m taking what I learned from that, and doing it again this summer on the topic of game balance. The course website is here, everything else you need is linked to from there, and I hope those of you who are interested in game design will join me again as we continue our journey.

The first lesson, “Intro to Game Balance,” has been published and can be found here.
