A finalist in the Technical Excellence category, "Perspective" is an experimental platformer that blends 2-D and 3-D gameplay in a series of puzzles. It was created by a group of eight students from across DigiPen's computer science, game design and fine arts degree programs.
"Super Space" was nominated as a finalist in the Excellence in Design category. This arcade-style multiplayer shooter blurs the line between competition and cooperation by allowing players to collectively control their spaceship while individually trying to rack up the high score. It was created by three students of DigiPen's game design degree programs.
Also recognized was "Chrono Disfunglement," a student game from DigiPen's Singapore campus, which earned an Honorable Mention in the IGF's student showcase.
Winners of both the main competition and student showcase will be announced at the IGF Awards on March 27 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
