The last and the most important assignment, especially for those who attend the game project course, is a video pitch of your game idea. In the beginning of the development course we will be reviewing these pitches and form our development groups based on the ideas you have. So if you really think youre idea is cool and would be nice to develop, pay some effort in this one.
