On Saturday, February 24, gamers at the Montréal Joue Festival had the chance to play “Manoir”, a game developed by our students.
LaSalle College was on hand as a silver partner for the Montréal Video Games event that kicked off the festival.
The public was invited to play an array of games created by Montréal developers and studios. Gamers could play from noon to midnight at the UQAM Cœur des Sciences building.
“Manoir” was created by students from the most recent graduating class. It was their final project, presented in the fall of 2017 during the Jury event.
The stands for Greatnest Studio and Pixelz Games were staffed by Pierrick Chagnon and Raphael Fortin, both of whom teach at LaSalle College, along with several other employees who are also Inter-Dec College (now LaSalle College) graduates.
In addition, the game presented by Greatnest Studio, “Spacemen in Space”, is an updated version of a game created a few years ago by students from LaSalle College.
Our students’ talents were on full display at the Montréal Joue Festival!
Again this year, students interested in entrepreneurship had the opportunity to develop their idea with support from teacher experts in the field who helped them take steps toward fulfilling the dream of building their own company.
