Beta the Game
Errol King, founder and lead developer from Hidden Level Games (a New York City-based company) has introduced this innovative game design platform to my Digital Media students last November. Since then, the students have been learning, testing, iterating and reflecting on their experiences. Feedback by the students to the game dev team happened in face-to-face workshops, shared Google Docs and emails.
“Beta is designed to support self-driven learning. Through their relationship with Beta, students will engage STEM and CompSci concepts in a fun way. While Beta can be played alone, it is best experienced in a community!”
|The game art and character design of Beta the Game are simple, direct and very compelling.|
