Phone Meeting

Today I had a phone meeting with Erik Champion (our client for the project) to decide on Mondays presentation with regards to the client brief and proposal. The notes of the meeting are as followed:

for monday

game engines: look at all engines
avatar: not first person? third person
game models: use egyptian models until we have time to make our own
know which person is doing that
what we want

how would it be successful?
erik: evaluation of equipment: ease of use, scripting required, user and design view, how hard to learn, how limited or portable
what types of interactions the equip suits best
faq for equipment
itinerary for what we want, what is availible - technology
1 test demo environment (web playable)
1 game engine to make videos and use in conferences
erik wants a copy of the stuff, not ownership
focus of the interactive

3 weeks on waiting on screen

not much work
need to control game outputs
