As the industry scrambles to keep up with evolving tastes and technology, this new sensibility could herald a big shift in the way the developers approach their product. "A perfect storm of distribution channels, game literacy, and appetite for content has led to an explosion of aesthetic games that deal with quieter emotions," says Katherine Isbister, a professor in NYU's gaming program. "There's now a robust, diverse market for games that may not be blockbusters, but can be profitable because they have much lower production costs." Read the article here.
"I’m excited to be writing to you since becoming NYU’s official School of Engineering. "
Begun in Fall 2014, entrepreneurs Ali Heron and Lucas Nelson's residency program is designed to coach, educate, mentor, and network students.
"Our program helps worldwide students come together and obtain the very strong background and skills that will lead them well into the job market—at Wall St., major tech companies, or within the government."
—Prof. Justin Cappos
"The School of Engineering is one of the best universities in the US, especially for computer science. Every professor I've had has been so proficient in their field that it's a privilege to learn from them."
