GameStewdio is a student project team in the Entertainment Technology Center, Carnegie Mellon University. Over sixteen weeks, our team of seven developed the game InkLand while being critiqued by faculty. After the semester, we received good feedback and decided to take the game further.
Keeping a team of seven joyous and communicating is always a challenge, though we became close as any development team should! Beginning the semester there were new faces and different cultures as well as different backgrounds. Late nights filled with hard work pulled us together, which became very important. We had several team bonding events when time was available (rarely), keeping the spirits up and getting us to know each other a little better.Following our work studies and producing a side project has pushed us to learn new things, developed new skills and given us more focus.
