You are invited to Games Day 2018!

8 May 2018, 2.00 PM - 8 May 2018, 4.00 PM

Merchant Venturers Building

Every year (since 1996) third year MEng computer science students work together in teams of six to create a state-of-the-art computer game. The groups spend up to 2400 hours between them building games that will thrill, delight or immerse the player and provide a spectacle for those watching them play.
In their games, students integrate technologies from across various computing subjects whilst flexing their creative muscles building new worlds and scenarios to explore.

 

Each group works with MA Music students to compose soundtracks for their game as well as taking advice from industrial mentors in the games, software or media industry.

This year's games range from a multiplayer rhythm-based dungeon crawler, to an augmented reality murder mystery and everything in between.

Intrigued? Come and play yourself! We’re inviting all staff and students to come to the Merchant Venturers Building and get hands on with the games. Games will be set up across the building, no need to book, just turn up and play!

When: Tuesday 8th May, 2pm – 4pm

Where: Merchant Venturers Building (Woodland Road)
