Bradley Game Design Students Featured on Global Stage

November 6, 2018

CNN recently reported that there are currently 2.3 billion active video gamers worldwide which has lead to a $137.9 billion market. With the demand for video games at an all-time high, it's important to have hardworking, inspired developers at the industry's fingertips.

Bradley University game designers have once again been highlighted for their impressive work -- this time by DreamHack.com, home of the world's largest computer festivals with the world's fastest Internet connection and the most generated traffic.

An announcement by DreamHack.com reveals that Bradley University's team, consisting of students Luke Piazza, Keziah Yarnoff, Paris Geis and Jake Hyland, is one of 11 teams selected to network and participate in this month's Atlanta Student Game Showcase. Other teams that received this honor are from the Netherlands, Canada, Georgia, Florida and California.

Bradley students created their game Match-Ride Rescue for a class assignment, and as a result, are going to have an experience of a lifetime.

Sophomore team member Luke Piazza stated, "People from all around the country who will attend this event will be able to play our game and provide us with valuable feedback on it. This opportunity will also help us get connected to people that work in the game development industry and learn more about their day-to-day life as a working game developer."
