A Visit From John Carmack

Today is the day!  It’s the day before UT Dallas gets a visit from John Carmack!  A lot of this afternoon involved a small team of students – myself included – and faculty preparing a lab to showcase some of our premiere video game projects to the gaming legend.

We are looking to show 5 of our games to Mr. Carmack:

  • Push and Pull
  • Return to Color
  • Grapple
  • Pollen Nation
  • Stop the Hogs

It was a happy surprise to me when this list was presented as I’ve worked as the lead programmer on 3 of these titles!  I have high hopes that tomorrow’s visit will be a good one for the students, the university, and for Mr. Carmack himself.
