Donkey Kong and Super Mario Bros creator and veteran Game Designer Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed that he’d like to teach Game Development when he retires.
“When I leave the company, I would like to work with young people and teach them about developing,” he said in a Guardian interview.
“Though it wouldn’t be like [traditional] teaching, more explaining how we think and how we interact with the user. For the development process, practical learning is important.”
Of course, Train2Game students already know the benefits of practical learning.
The Nintendo man added that he has no plans to retire yet.
Train2Game students would no doubt relish any small chance to learn Game Development skills from Shigeru Miyamoto, or a vast number of other high profile Game Designers.
So here’s a question for Train2Game students; if you could be taught one thing by one high profile Game Developer, what would you choose learn, who would it be from, and why?
