I made it! Here I am! Hi! Hi! HI! lol.
It sort of feels like Tae Kwon Do class with this big open discussion! I am so interested in this! What do I have to do to prepare? Do I just need a game thesis? I have some artwork and storyboards for my game. How do I go about presenting this professionally? Does it cost any money?
