This April, second semester students in the AEC in Game and Level Design program had the chance to participate in the second edition of the LaSalle College Game Jam!
This event, organized by Olivier Vézina, a teacher in the program, took place over the course of nearly a month and had the objective to allow students to develop a video game based on a given theme. At the same time, it allowed them to add a first project to their portfolio as well as to live the experience of a team production.
The Game Jam began on March 28 when Mr. Vézina announced the theme of the competition to the participants: Fortune Favours the Bold. The students were divided into teams of 1 to 5 students, creating 4 French-speaking and 4 English-speaking teams.
The 8 teams competed to see who could best master the skills of programming, level design, game design, and even narrative design. A great challenge for the students who, supervised by their teachers, gave their all in this large-scale project.
The finale took place on April 26 when the teachers judged the games according to several criteria: fun, originality, presentation and respect of the theme.
Here are the results of the competition:
