  4. Thomas discussed his goal of incorporating the games he developed into his course, and restructuring his course around those games.
  5. He demonstrated his TaleBlazer game “Let a Sentence be Your Guide”, an interactive tour of Savannah, GA. He also published on the performance here: https://doi.org/10.1080/13528165.2022.2224207
  6. Thomas also demonstrated a flippity randomizer for advertisement, and an escape room on tourism advertising.
