We actually had such a great turnout that GDC didn't have space for group tables, so I had to cut my exercises. Instead, the wave was a last-minute idea to get people off their feet at the end of the day, since I was sort of relying upon the exercises to keep everyone engaged for an hour. Thanks to this cut, I ended up showing a video example of some LD storytelling techniques in Fallout 3, which I had removed from earlier versions of the talk.
Thanks again to everyone who came out! The Level Design sessions were a huge success, and I hope everyone enjoyed attending as much as we did putting them together. Who knows, maybe we'll be back next year! Here's the file for your downloading pleasure.
P.S. - If anybody knows a good way to embed a powerpoint with slide animations intact, let me know! Lots of my slides are unreadable without these, and I'd like for folks without Office 2007 to be able to benefit from them, too.
