The NYU Game Center, an acclaimed program at New York University, has announced the addition of two new, well-known faculty to its lineup -- beginning this fall.
Naomi Clark is a writer and game developer, and the co-author, along with independent developer Anna Anthropy, of textbook A Game Design Vocabulary. She has frequently given talks at game conferences. Leigh Alexander wrote about her game Consensual Tentacles on Gamasutra late last year.
Mitu Khandaker-Kokoris is known for her game Redshirt and also frequently speaks at conferences. She's won awards for her work, including the Breakthrough Brit BAFTA in 2013 and the Creative English Trailblazer Award in 2014. She's also blogged on Gamasutra, if you're interested in reading her work.
