BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The public is invited to come on down and play
new video games designed and produced by students in the University
at Buffalo Department of Media Study, from 6-9 p.m. May 2 in 242
and 278 Center for the Arts, UB North Campus.
It's free and refreshments will be served.
The games were created in the Virtual Worlds Two class taught by
Josephine Anstey, PhD, associate professor of media study. They
-- "Dhp 129," a game about food and where it comes from,
designed by Devin Wilson, Russel Aronchick and Jess Printup.
-- "Mind Games," a game about Sarah, a young lady with a
troubled past. Players complete puzzles and explore her memories to
find out just how troubled she is. Designed by David Kim, Dan
Prescott and James Smith.
-- "Devil's Breath" relives the distorted memories of a
detective. His actions are clear but his motives are not. It's up
to the player to solve the case. Designed by Nate Marquardt, John
Longanecker, Leomary Rodriguez and Xiangxiang Zeng.
-- "Fatso and Nutreus" Yeeks! Your very body is in peril -- SAVE
YOURSELF! Eat better now or watch the inside of your body face the
consequences. Designed by Kevin Diehl, Alex Fineberg, Shirley
Allotey and Alex Weidner.
-- "A Matter of Scale:" Kick a ball, a speck of pollen, a virus.
Experience fundamental forces at the macro, micro and nano scale.
Designed by Dave Mauzy.
-- "Time": She's gonna die, man -- if only you could go back in
time to save her! But wait, didn't you just invent a time machine?
Designed by Bojan Percevic and Ryan Mallette.
