EKU Students Present Projects to Video Game Developers

Posted: Updated:
 Eastern Kentucky University students got the chance to present their work to some of the best video game developers in the business. EKU is the first University in the state to offer a bachelor's degree program in game design, which started about 8 years ago. Dr. George Landon says "in the past few years we've really started picking up the pace, our students have been producing games that you can compare to games on the market right now."

Around 30 students came along with 15 professionals to show their semester projects. EKU senior Daniel Marifjeren says the feedback he got will help him grow as a future developer. He said "When you make a game, you spend so many hours and you think you know the game inside and out and then the first time somebody will sit at your game and play it they'll point out something so obvious and you can't believe you didn't think of it."

Dr. Landon says Kentucky is in a period of massive growth for game development and there are a lot of new start ups showing real promise. People at Wednesday's gathering say they hope it becomes an annual event.
