Earthquake/tsunami aftermath in Japan

Monday, March 21st, 2011

A week after the disaster, the world is still reminded of the unfathomable destruction that had happened in Japan.  With rescue crews still working night and day to find survivors and evacuate those in danger of radiation exposure, we can also help the people of Japan.  Many organizations have set up ways to help through donations.

Here are a few:

American Red Cross

Save the Children

Global Giving

The Cogswell community is keeping those affected by the disaster in their hearts and minds as many students attending Cogswell have connections to the disaster via family and friends.

“Picture yourself playing Super Mario Brothers. Imagine the sensation of moving Mario around the level, the feel of jumping over pipes and platforms,” said Steve Swink, author. “In digital game design, ‘feel’ is the most overlooked facet of game design. It’s a powerful, gripping, tactile sensation that exists somewhere in the space between player and game.”

Cogswell Alumnus, Steve Swink (Class of 2005), authored the book Game Feel: A Game Designer’s Guide to Virtual Sensation. The publication was released in paperback in October 2008 by Focal Press/Morgan Kaufmann.

Steve Swink graduated from Cogswell in 2005 with a Bachelor degree in Computer and Video Imaging. He is a game designer and managing partner at Flashbang Studios, a creator of independent games in Tempe, Arizona.
