Dean Bottino, Studio Art

Designing Computer Games that Foster Ethical Behavior in Grades 1 and 2

 

"My role was to develop the character designs and play elements for an educational computer game, and to put together a simple interactive demonstration of the first level. I will continue to work with my mentor to further develop the game and character designs, and to help recruit voice actors and programmers to take it into the beta stage. Overall, the SURF-IT experience has cemented my plans to pursue a career in the game industry, and this project is helping me get the experience I need to work in such an environment, as well as an opportunity to develop my portfolio."

Collaborated with Liane Brouillette on Designing Computer Games that Foster Ethical Behavior in Grades 1 and 2.
