Bloomfield College to host new monthly Game Development Lecture Series

By: Andrew Mees, Director of Institutional Communications and Campaign Marketing                   communications@bloomfield.edu

The Division of Creative Arts & Technology at Bloomfield College will give the community the chance to interact with one of New York’s leading game development companies Sept. 22, as the academic area will offer the first installment of its new Game Development Lecture Series at the historic Westminster Arts Center featuring popular studio Arkadium.

“We’re launching the Bloomfield College Game Development Lecture Series to bring a diverse range of seasoned industry veterans on to our campus and provide them with a platform speak on the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of what they do professionally,” said Bloomfield College game design professor Brian Chung.

The free event will begin with a pop-up arcade where guests can test Arkadium’s latest creations (the studio has produced popular casual games and social games for Facebook, mobile and the web since its inception in 2001). Following the arcade, patrons will be able to view a lecture given by Arkadium’s Senior Game Developer David Or and Game Designer Heather Arbiter, which will be moderated by Bloomfield faculty Brian S. Chung and GJ Lee. A reception will follow with refreshments for all attendees.

Offering undergraduate students tracks leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree in animation, digital video, game development, music technology, graphics for print & digital media and interactive multimedia & worldwide web, the academic division has become one of Bloomfield College’s signature areas and will welcome a new state-of-the-art facility to the 11-acre campus in Sept. 2016.

“Casual games are highly successful games seen by the widest audience, but they are typically dismissed by the gaming community,” said Lee. “In this talk, members of Arkadium will highlight some of the misconceptions surrounding these games and how they’re made. We hope this first lecture gives patrons a great experience, and keeps them coming back each month.”

The event will be free of charge and open to the public, and will take place from 6-8 p.m. The reception following the lecture will end at 9 p.m. To RSVP for the event, visit bcgamedev2015sep.evenbrite.com.
