Hi Everyone, Since @honoru’s Michael and Tiffany and leaving for Germany for two weeks, there will be no workshops until the 10th Nov. However, Michael sent me a bunch of messages giving us some updates on their progress.
Last week, they have finished interviewed and decided to hire two interns for the project, one animator and one programmer that would help them through to the end of December. The idea is that towards December, the students are getting busy for their academic commitments, and so it would be better to have more people on board to help with the project. The two interns current studying in University, and they are keen to lend a helping hand while gaining more experience for their future careers.
In the next two workshops, which are scheduled on 10th November and 17th November, our students will work together to improve and perfect the game that was uploaded on Google Play last week, and at the same time work out the designs and the specifics of the next versions of the game. Currently, two versions are in the pipeline. The first version would be a creative edition for available on Google Play and IOS App store, where people can download and create their own word game or puzzle game. The second version would be an implementation of the word game in html5 version to be uploaded onto Steemgg. Once the designs and specifics are finalised, these will be passed onto the two interns who will work on the actual implementation. Hopefully the games will be completed in December.
Michael also mentioned that towards the end of November, iCare will be organising a retreat in Guangzhou for the students and their families, to relax a bit, but also to debrief and feedback on what they have learn and how to move forward. One possibility they are looking into in animation, as making animation gives the SEN students the opportunities to express themselves, while expanding their reach to not just games, but also cartoons and short films.
That’s all for this week. We probably won’t have another update until the next workshop on 10th November. Until then, stay safe, and have fun at Steemfest for those of you who are going!
在未来的两个课堂(十一月十日和十一月十七日)，与别不同团队的学童们将会致力把上次已上架Google Play的游戏进行改良，并且为游戏的下个版本进行设计和策划。现在为止最主要是两个构思，第一个是会上架Goggle Play和IOS App Store的创造者版本，可以让玩家自己创造文字或拼图游戏。而第二个构思是会上架Steemgg的html5版本文字游戏。学童们会把这两个版本的设计和策划在十一月底前做好，然后会交给两位实习生实作，争取十二月上架。
