The Flash Game Presentations have been a long-standing tradition here at VFS Game Design.
Working in a small team, the students develop a Flash game over a 14-week period in Terms 2 and 3. While learning the intricacies of the Flash engine, the students write code, create art and produce audio for their games. The whole process culminates in a presentation to the entire Game Design student body, faculty and staff.
A packed house… great turnout!
The GD30s came prepared, showcasing 5 unique games that were more than worthy of joining the Arcade vault! Chevy Ray Johnston kicked off the show with a warm welcome to the crowd.
Up first was Lightmare: An adventure game, where the player searches the Aztec ruins of Southern Mexico.
Next was The Tragic Tale of Unit 77: A fast-paced avoidance game, where the player controls a badly damaged robot as it tries to repair itself.
Third to present was Bunny Slippers & Pink Ties: A survival game where the player tries to defeat the zombie kittens that have infested the city.
Then came Mind Flight, where your dream of riding a paper airplane comes true.
And last but not least is Kentucky Chase: An intergalactic shooter featuring the infamous Pickle Gun.
Following the presentations, the Game Design students and staff were invited back to the classroom to try the games first-hand.
Special thanks to Game Design instructors Chevy Ray Johnston, Benjamin Stern, Crystal Lau and our resident audiophile Steve Royea.
Congratulations GD30s, the bar has definitely been raised! I look forward to seeing what the GD31s have to offer this term… no pressure guys.
