For the entirety of August, I’m pleased to say that I have an internship with Sassy Tuna! Sassy Tuna is a small art company in Newfoundland that offers a range of art-related activities including art classes, caricatures, video game making and more! So far during my internship, I’ve had the chance to do market research, help my internship provider with tasks to help prepare art prints and for her classes, and explore amazing software such as Construct 2.
For my second day at work, I helped prepare the packaging for some art prints and had the rest of the day to learn the software previously mentioned, Construct 2. This software allows users to create their own video games without the need for programming, so I made my own platformer style game which was a lot of fun! I also learned a lot about the process of video game making, which I never would have learned otherwise. I look forward to the rest of the month working and learning at Sassy Tuna!
