(CONTENT WARNING: this talk features frequent footage of hunky dudes taking their clothes off... but nothing hardcore.)
Game designers, developers, and players often have very little formalized knowledge of lighting design. Indies, in particular, generally distrust complex 3D engine middleware as tainted demonic magick that is either beneath or beyond them. But it doesn't have to be like that! What can game lighting mean, and how can games use lighting to affect mood? In this talk inspired by the seminal beefcake film Magic Mike (2012), we will learn about contemporary game lighting technologies and workflows, as well as watch a lot of men take their clothes off. Let's get lit!
