Two former Northbrook students have developed a game which has won a prestigious award.
Matt Woolven and Marco Marino won the Student Showcase award at the Independent Games Festival for their game 'GLiD', which is described as an antidote to the violent nature of many contemporary games. GLiD is a single player ambient exploration game which features a gentle insect-type creature, tasked with exploring and restoring an abandoned world.
Marco, who was an Art and Design Diploma student, and Matt, who is currently taking a year off from his BA in Communication Design, have now been invited to the Games Development Conference in San Francisco this month to exhibit GLiD and collect their prize.
Gary Goodman, Lecturer in Art and Design said, "There has been a lot of media interest in GLiD and Matt and Marco have been interviewed several times. This is a great achievement from two students from Northbrook College."
Matt is intending to return to the College next year, to complete his BA in Communication Design.
