For the last two years, Nintendo's Game Seminar
students have created neat DS games that have later been made available at Download Stations
for free (before that, it was GBA games). Nintendo has just begun taking applications for the 2008 round of the free 10-month Seminar, which offers courses on programming, sound and graphic design, along with lectures from industry professionals.
If you should happen to want to make games, if you live in Japan, and if you have time for some extra classes, why not apply
? If you're one of the lucky 40 accepted students, you could have the opportunity to have your own tea table upended
