Making a game and making art work is different in some ways but also similar in as well. When making these games they started out with an idea. Art work is made the same way for me. I usually have to think of what I would like to do before taking the steps to get it done. Another thing that is similar is when making art I may have to draw little sketches to see if what I plan to do will work. With the game making I had to draw out a diagram to get an idea of how the game will go before introducing it to my classmates.

There were many differences as well. When making the games i didn't have to worry as much about the aesthetics of it. It could have looked however I wanted it to as long as it was fun and organized. With art we always want to make something that makes people look and hold their attention. Another thing is interaction. When I make art it is not usually something that people can interact with. Unlike the art in the gallery I make art that is less interactive. So when i made this game it was completely interactive. Lastly I felt that one of the other contrasts was the fact that when making the game I had to consider other people. I had to think what people would want to do and enjoy doing. When making art I hardly consider others. I make art that would please me. Of course unless it’s for a class but even then I usually make art that I’m satisfied with and later think if others will like it.
