Corrie Green from Elgin was the only solo entrant from 14 teams competing at the Moray Game Jam, where designers from throughout Scotland had the task of designing and creating a new game from scratch – and launching it as a commercial enterprise over a weekend.
An HND student at the college, Corrie’s prize from the event is the opportunity to develop his product further with the assistance of the Hunted Cow Studio in Elgin.
Corrie beat a team of game developers from the Abertay University into second place in a contest that also offered competitors the chance to design a traditional board game. Judging for the contest was conducted by a panel of experts – including one who had travelled from California.
Also judging was Andrew Mulholland, co-director of Hunted Cow Studios who are publishers of mobile games. He said: “With the addition of master classes from industry veterans and the board game category, the event had a broad appeal for anyone with an interest in physical and digital game design and development.”
Based at South Street in Elgin, Hunted Cow have a world-wide user base of over one million playing browser, tablet and phone based games such as Fallen Sword, Eldevin and Battle Dungeon.
