Good Luck, Team IGDA
October 20, 2016
The Art Institute of Pittsburgh – Online Division’s International Game Developers Association Student Chapter (IGDA) has created a game demo that has been selected as a finalist in the “GAME ON” competition at the MIA Animation Conference and Festival in Miami, Florida. Their game pitch, LiBot, is a semi-stylized, steampunk, 3D shooter game featuring LiBot, a small robot who is searching for his maker in order to exact revenge after being discarded for not being perfect.
The game project team includes several students, graduates, and previous students of The Art Institute of Pittsburgh – Online Division, including Tina Wong of San Francisco, California (2014 Graduate, Character Animation for Games – Certificate), Yasmany Roman of Flowery Branch, Georgia (Current Student, Game Art & Design, Bachelor of Science), Abinadi Cordova from Riverview, Florida, (Current Student, Game Art & Design, Bachelor of Science), and Kit Gardner from Caldwell, Idaho (Current Student, Game Art& Design – Bachelor of Science).
Three members of the project team, along with Sara Wade, faculty mentor for the IGDA group, will be representing The Art Institute of Pittsburgh – Online Division’s IGDA team at the MIA conference on October 22, 2016 where the “GAME ON” winner will be announced. We wish the group the very best of luck. Stay tuned here for more updates on the outcome of the competition!
The International Game Developers group meets weekly, with the help of the faculty mentor, Sara Wade. To learn more about our IGDA student chapter, feel free to reach out to Sara Wade at firstname.lastname@example.org.
