Computer Games Day Wows Visitors
Date posted: 20 December 2012
An interactive computer games exhibition at the University of Derby - showcasing students' innovative work - proved a hit with visitors.
The Games@Derby event yesterday (December 19), sponsored by global software giant Microsoft, featured original and playable games by students on Derby's BSc (Hons) Computer Games Programming (CGP) and BA (Hons) Computer Games Modelling and Animation (CGMA) degree courses.
Amazingly, the students had produced their working games from scratch in just 12 weeks; with teams of programmers and artists working together.
Visitors to yesterday's event, held in the Atrium at the University's main Kedleston Road site in Derby, were also able to see the work of graduates from the courses, who have gone on to set up their own computer games companies.
A judges' panel of course lecturers - who have worked in the games industry themselves - and Microsoft executives assessed the students' work and awarded prizes for the best creations on the day.
