“Daring to be digital – Scotland’s premier game design competition reaches its climax.
One of the biggest mixed opportunities of EIEF was the inclusion of a showcase featuring the work of students competing in the Dare To Be Digital event. In an organisational mix-up fairly hard to forgive at such a small conference, there was no one available to present the session, which meant that the students’ work was shown without any explanation and worse, without any sound at all.
Despite the uncomfortable atmosphere, the sheer variety and visual flair of the teams’ work shone through raising a genuine sense of enthusiasm and respect for how much they had accomplished in such a short space of time. The Develop Award for the game with the most real-world potential went to a fish-breading game called Fishisms from the team Gene Therapy.
However it was clear that the festival’s heart belonged to Missing Link’s action-puzzler game, which sees the player forming hand-holding chains with the passer-by, the properties of the chain altering depending on the nature of the individuals it contains.”
