UNversity Update 05/09/2014

Only 17 days until classes start back at University of the West of Scotland and people are starting to tie up their summer projects. Here’s a look into everyone’s progress:

 

  • Aleksander Ciesielski has managed to finish his game and got it onto Greenlight. You can check out his game here: Exowar  The game is generating a lot of interest and has got 120 comments and counting already. You can help Aleksander out and give the game a ‘yes’ vote via the link. This will help the game reach its goal of being available to purchase on ‘Steam’.
  • Tinu Toader has finished his summer project of modeling his home football stadium. He learned a lot from this objective with programming, modeling and time management to name several. Through learning all these different aspects on the way, he also came out with an amazing product which is a real achievement. Tinu Toaders Blog
  • Jonathan Livingstone is close to finishing his project with about 90% of it complete. The game is looking great with some help from an artist named Lauren Martin. Jonathan is looking to fix a few bugs which are persisting at the moment and add a few more levels to the game. Jonathan’s Blog
  • Kenneth Mason has added more to his character controller with a push/pull, ladder climb and ragdoll mechanic. Getting all these mechanics to work together in one level with multiple instances of each has proved to be the biggest challenge but one which has been solved.

 

As Tinu said in his blog, the main thing about these projects is to learn and I think most of us have learned a lot over the summer which will stand us in good stead for the coming year.
