July Game Final Project Presentations

Students, faculty, and family members convened in the Entertainment Business Auditorium for this month’s Game Project Final Presentations. This month featured three projects from Shenanigames Studios.

First up was Avant Garde Productions’ Dark Matter, an action-packed strategy game that gives players the chance to dodge oncoming swarms of unfriendly alien opponents.

Gourmet Games’ Parasite follows Daft, a demon parasite hunter on a quest to cleanse a world that’s been overrun by evil (yep, you guessed it) parasites.

And finally, Painfully Awesome presented Cast Away, which the developers described as a mix of Grumpy Old Men and Gilligan’s Island. The game’s story involves two old sea dogs blasting each other with real-time artillery and a slew of wacky weapons.

The Game Project Final Presentations require Game Development students to come together as a team and pitch an idea for a complete game. Once an idea gets approved, they team with Game Art and Recording Arts students to develop the project to its completion and present it before an auditorium of faculty, guests, and students.
