Learn Gaming from the Romero Professors

UC Santa Cruz announces that John and Brenda Romero will run a new masters program in "games and playable media" (i.e., games and games?). Word is they are bringing both prior experience and industry friends to their curriculum:

Both John and Brenda Romero also have experience leading well-regarded game programs at other universities. Brenda Romero served as chair of the Savannah College of Art and Design's Interactive Design and Game Development department, while John Romero helped establish the Digital Games Guildhall program at Southern Methodist University.

As program director at UCSC, Brenda Romero oversees the curriculum and instructors, teaches and mentors students, and builds connections with companies in the computer game industry. The program's advisory board features leading game developers, including Will Wright (Stupid Fun Club), Harvey Smith (Arkane), Derek Yu (Spelunky), Robin Hunicke (Funomena), Ben Prunty (FTL), and Brian Schwab (Blizzard).

How will he explain Daikatana to the class? Perhaps this is more like a "scared straight" type course?

Romero: "You little punks don't know squat about game design! You, in the corner! You're gonna be my bitch! Grab my belt loop!"

How NOT to make a game. Now there is something Romero could teach...

Hasn't he been in Thailand making cell phone games for the past 15 years or something?

It's not a name that exactly screams "awesome relevant game industry pro" anymore. Oh well. I guess he still has name recognition left and that's probably all they want to get the program started.
