Matt Ditton’s 3 simple steps to Cube glory

Our amazing mentor Matt Ditton from Many Monkeys Game Dev has given today’s Jammers the best prices for coming up with a great pitch for the Cube.

1. IDEAS, a lot of ideas

2. Performative development: take it into the actual space and walk it through

3. Storyboard: visual ideas are best communicated through visual language
