Join Toys for Bob’s Blake Maloof and I-Wei Huang tomorrow at Maker Camp on Google+. Blake is an Associate Game Designer, a relative newcomer to the game industry, and I-Wei is Toys for Bob’s Toy and Character Director, and a veteran in the field. They both worked on the smash hit game Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure and the forthcoming Skylanders: Giants. They’ll talk about game and character design and present “Monsters Ruined my Summer Camp,” a simple board game for campers to make and modify. Look for the game how-to in the morning and then join them at noon PDT (3pm EDT) for the Google Hangout on Air.
