Hey all, with the end of 2014 fast approaching and a new year around the corner we here at VFS thought it would be nice to look back at the year and highlight everyone’s hard work as well as look forward to 2015! (and put the spotlight on all the new games that have been updated in this websites library!)
When I consider 2014 it’s hard to believe all that has changed since I was in my second term at this time last year. Students have graduated, Staff has come and gone, Alumni have gotten exciting jobs in Vancouver and around the world, a new program that VFS is offering here at the Game Design campus has started: “Programming for Games, Web, & Mobile”, and perhaps most importantly we have made a lot of really cool and exciting games. Five Game Design classes have graduated with one more class, the GD37′s (who are notable for being the first GD class to collaborate with the new Programming program) graduating in the coming weeks.
Another term at VFS and another graduating class of game designers hit the stage at the GD36 Pitch & Play event. Four teams of aspiring game designers showcased their games in front of VFS Game Design Staff and industry professionals on October 2ndand were later joined on the production floor as folks played their completed games and built new connections in the games industry.
Game Design department head Dave Warfield opened the night by addressing the audience before passing on the torch to emcee Rick Davidson, who used his charm and wit to engage spectators in the studio and those watching the online stream. Without further ado, here are the four amazing projects that were presented by our freshly baked game designers!
