The School of Media Arts & Studies is very pleased that Games & Animation student Craig Brown was recently named a top pick in Game Career Guide's Game Design Challenge.
The Game Career Guide organizes a game design challenge for students every two weeks which includes a central element that must be featured in the game. For this challenge the theme was "Making Maps."
Brown submitted an entry titled "Nut Hunt." In the game, players assume the role of a squirrel named Bucky who is trying to stockpile as many nuts as possible within a randomly generated world while trying to evade lumberers, other squirrels, and Bucky's own short attention span. To aid Bucky remember where his nuts are hidden, players may utilize a camera and map to create snapshots and drawings of their current location.
