Games and Teams

Up in the AirUp in the Air
Student Team: Studio Jiggly

Up in the Air is zany, open-world game in which you play a balloon dog exploring a demented carnival populated by crazy children. Players must use a variety of power ups, from water balloons to ground pound, to fend the kids off and collect carnival tickets. Players can burn Big Weenie, knock over a castle, trap children in a cardboard jail, master hopscotch, become radioactive, turn off the sun, or get popped by a cactus, or even find the notorious child Chunkles and his gaping maw. This game won Third Place for Best Gameplay at the Intel University Games Showcase at GDC 2018.

Lost in the Dark
Student Team: Sleepless Dreamer Studios

Lost in the Dark
 is a third-person exploration game with horror elements set during an epidemic in 19th Century Victorian London. A young orphan wakes to a nightmare with no memory of how she got there. A growl echoes through the darkness, sending chills down the spine. Someone, or something, is watching. Playing as the orphan, with a lantern as your sole means of protection, you must find a way to escape from this nefarious entity that is seeking to drag you into the depths of the darkness. Stay in the light to avoid fading away, lest you be lost in the dark forever.

Student Team: Moon Hook Studios

 is a third-person action-adventure game in which players take on the role of Avery, a spunky space explorer that has crash landed on an eerie alien planet. Upon reentry, her rescue satellite lost power. She must venture into the planet's overgrown ruins, which guard an ancient secret and a lost civilization, to find solar cells that will allow her to power the satellite back up and call for help. Aided by her trusty robotic blade, Avery is able to cross treacherous platforms, unlock mysteries, and combat cute but sinister defenses left behind by the lost ancient race that used to inhabit the planet.
