Android Game Development on Campus

ONE OF THE MOST clever evolutions of the creative multimedia programme in the Limerick Institute of Technology is how it has started to poke into app development. We're doing user testing with junior infants on an Android game that's currently in alpha.

You can click on the still image of this blog post to hear Mia's opinion about the mathematics game and the Space Junk game (her favourite). The games are the brain children of Ross Bolger, Patrick Broder and Edgaras Zvirblys on the Clonmel campus of the Limerick School of Art and Design. I like what's evolving with the game.

Mia, the tester, used a Motorola Media Tablet to evaluate the immersive game. One handy thing about the game is that its APK file can be emailed to anyone and it they're using Android, it just works.

We'll have an update about Space Junk and two other games as the Spring 2013 semester winds to its conclusion.
