This week we talk about how to get ahead before you graduate, taking on competitions and learning from the best.
This week we discuss a little Q&A, mostly aimed at freshers but then we catchup with Gary Lloyd, one of our graduates and co-founder of Sigtrap games.
So… a new year is upon us so we’ve restarted the vLog and here we welcome everyone, new and old and talk about some of the changes that are happening around access to campus and blended learning.
With Covid-19 still impacting our day to day lives we’ve (mostly Matt!) have put together a little “Virtual Open Day” page here on hudunigames. There’s a video with tour and talk and even a Q&A. There is also a PDF with a selection of links to some our students work for you to check out.
This week look at where some of graduates are upto in their careers and latest work along with some things to keep you busy over summer.
This week we spend over an hour talking about final year projects.
In this weeks vLog we talk about the announcements of UE5 and the PS5 along with other exciting news in games development
This week Matt talks us through some of the submissions to the final year Advanced Visual Studies module.
Similar to a few weeks ago when we chatted about the Advanced 3D submissions this year, this week we talk about the submissions to the prototyping 3 module. “What’s on the box” is also back this week!
So this Friday 29th May sees the Nintendo Switch release of Flux8, although if you can’t wait you can preorder now at https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-Switch-download-software/Flux8-1771534.html
We were very lucky to have some of the team from Torchbearer join us this week to talk a little about the challenges of porting the PC version (still available on Steam https://store.steampowered.com/app/658810/Flux8/) to Nintendo Switch. We were joined by founder Pete and Jon and programmer Matt who worked in Canalside Studios on the original PC version.
Jon and Pete are graduates of our Computer Games Programming route and founded Torchbearer during their placement year on the Enterprise Placement Year. Matt is also a graduate of the Computer Games Programming course.
Join Matt and I discussing Flux8 and comparing the differences between the PC and Switch versions.
