Incoming Freshmen

Incoming freshmen at CVGA

Today we had an impressive assortment of incoming freshmen check out the archive in a big tour, about 60 people in total. It's wonderful to see so many new students taking an interest, but we just had to take pictures since we haven't had that big of a crowd in quite some time.

Sid Meier's Game Design Boot Camp

A piece appeared in UM's Michigan Today about Sid Meier's Game Design Boot Camp, which took place earlier this Summer. In it, we discover what gave him the idea for the boot camp, which companies were involved, and a bit about how it was structured. We also learn that not only was Sid Meier's son Ryan involved (a UM graduate), but also his mother, who attended the event as well.

To go along with our recent redesign of the archive bulletin board, we've updated our featured game section to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Street Fighter series. So far, all of the series that we've featured are celebrating 25th anniversaries, so we'll see how long we can keep it up.
