Assistant Professor, David Johnson (DJ) took his Video Game Design and Development (VGDD) class to the Boston Festival of Indie Games on September 12th. VGDD Senior Project – The “Nu” Class (14th greek letter) had to present their capstone games at the festival  which was held on the MIT campus in Cambridge. New England Tech’s four teams rotated through the booth during the six-hour event with the goal of trying to get 100 players and user feedback.

Team One had a multiplayer “capture the flag” game called Block Island Bots.

Team Two featured a mobile device game called ”Human Cannonball” The objective of this game was to dodge mid-air obstacles and capture coins.

Team Three presented Grand Techno Rush, a racing game with an interesting musical effect.

Team Four offered a dark stealth game called Agent Scorpion. The event gives each team the experience of crafting release quality games for a rabid player audience.
