Games created by students from our BA Games Design & Art have featured as part of an event at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Created by Aaron Williams; Claudia Thomas & Bobbie Allsop; and Jess Castle, James Pearson & Amelia Ng, they have been part of the available interactive installations at the Futureplay Tech Zone, hosted at the Assembly Rooms.

The event included an array of games from different producers, allowing the users to experience a range of interactive games and installations combined art with technology, running from 3rd - 26th August 2017. 

The WSA games featured were:

Denzien, by Aaron Williams, which is a puzzle-platformer set in a world constructed from found objects. Together with your companion, you must overcome adversity and tragedy to reach your ultimate destiny. Denizen hopes to change some of the prejudices people may have about homelessness.

Hurry Hurry Heal Me, by Claudia Thomas and Bobbie Allsop, a multiplayer, local cooperative that flips the shoot ‘em up on its head by using healing as its mechanic. This “Heal ‘em up” encourages use of teamwork and communication. Players work together to survive.

and

Twilleir, by Jess Castle, James Pearson and Amelia Ng, an Adventure Tycoon game set in the fantasy world of Ephara, where players have to create dreams for residents of the town. Search for essential dream-crafting ingredients in the caves but beware of the monsters that lurk within!
