Game Changer: Episode III

As the Spring Semester came to a close, the last thing that needed to happen was the Big Reveal!  That’s right…who won?  Well, our instructor Matt decided to keep us in anticipation for quite sometime. Until…

May 10th, 2017 – 2nd Annual LLCC Video Game Design Tournament Awards

There were 3 awards (6 total between DAP-120 & DAP-220) between both classes:  Best Overall, Best Concept, & Best Experience.  While all students form both the DAP-120 & DAP-220 received gifts, winning team members in each category were to allowed to choose a prize from a group of items ranging from iPad Minis to wireless computer mice.

I’m happy to report Dark Waters took home the first prize of the night, winning Best Overall Game (DAP-120).  Needlesstosay, we were very happy at the outcome!  Nothing more satisfying for an artist/designer/developer (you know, us creative types) to receive accolades for our work & dedication. I by no means thought we had it in the bag.  There were so many great games by both the DAP-120 & DAP-220 classes.  Our instructor would highly agree the bar DEFINITELY got raised this year in both classes.  I can only imagine what next year and the years to come will bring to the tournament.

So where do things go from here?  Well, that’s a very good question!  We have seen & heard from many asking us whether we will be making Dark Waters available on Apple’s App Store.  The answer is:  Yes.  When will it be available is unknown at this time.  Our team plans to sit down in the near future to hash out the details. We may be looking at a turnaround time of 3-6 months but may be delayed up to a year (depending on other commitments of the team members).  As soon as I know more, I will make sure to get something out there.

I guess as far as what else…well, that’s all HUSH HUSH at the moment.   Potentially big things are in the works but unfortunately I am unable to divulge any information at this time.   Stay tuned!
