Pitch Prep

Tomorrow is pitch day, and I'm getting pretty pumped for it! I think I've got a solid concept but who knows what the other students have planned? Somewhere in Utah, right now, there may be somebody sketching out the next Minecraft. You just never know!
It's going to be another week of no programming work on the game simply because, as of right now, there IS no game. I've got other programming projects for work (more custom report development? Goody) but I really can't wait to get into the guts of this course. After doing my presentation I'm hoping to post the pitch document here, but I want to clear that with Bob & Roger first.

Hello, World!

Hello, world!
I can't think of a more appropriate first post for a dev blog, can you? My goal for this week is to flesh out an idea for a game pitch for the EAE capstone at the University of Utah. Excellent program, by the way - it's more fun than an Island of Monkeys. I think I've got a winner - I don't want to jump the gun too much, but it involves orcs, heroes, and cotton candy. Intrigued? So am I - here's hoping it's chosen as one of the game ideas to build into a prototype!
No development work this week. It looks like there's a LOT of talent in the program this year from both Film and CS departments. I can't wait to get started!
