Derby, United Kingdom, December 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- A series of ‘cat and mouse’ games created by Games Development students based at Derby College at South East Derbyshire will soon be posted on the internet for everyone to enjoy.
Students on the specialist course in Heanor, which is the only one of its kind in Derbyshire, were given the brief to design and create a game following the traditional format of the player being chased through different levels of a maze and collecting points along the way.
Games Development lecturer Bob Fordi explained: “The cat and mouse project has been a culmination of the design and development work that the students have been working on in their first year and I am very impressed with the results.
“We now plan to upload the best of them on the YoYo games website and also hopefully on the Derby College website to show prospective students what they too can be doing on the course.”
Among the second year students involved in the project was Zak Harrison (20) from Ilkeston who devised a game with an Indiana Jones style character collecting Ancient Eyptian artefacts.
He said: “I have always loved computer games so it is great to be doing a course where you can analyse and create your own games. I hope to go onto University and then get a job in this industry.”
