Two student groups from Snarky Studios presented the end results of months of hard work, problem-solving, designing, coding, and precision at the Game Project Final Presentations this month. Students, faculty, and family members convened in the Full Sail Live Venue to see what students had to offer on the day before their graduation from Full Sail.
Mini-Mech: Exterminator tasks players with getting rid of some pesky insect vermin – with a lot more heavy artillery than what you’re going to get when you call the Orkin man to make a house call. Users can also team up with three additional players to join forces in fighting to destroy the menacing Ant Queen.
Shaemus O’Reaper puts the player in the shoes of the Grim Reaper’s Scottish cousin, Shaemus (sounds perfectly reasonable). As Shaemus makes his way through the Scottish Highlands to free Scotland from Queen Elizabeth’s reign (again, sounds perfectly reasonable), he is able to use his magical scythe and ethereal bagpipe abilities to disarm her legion of ruthless Redcoat soldiers along the way.
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.
