Bradley Video Game Design Students Shoot for the Stars

Jun 1, 2017


A Bradley University game design team is getting a chance to put their creation on one of the world's largest gaming stages.

The team of student game designers came together for their capstone project last year. They created a video game called "Starcats". It placed in the top 5 of the Entertainment Software Association‘s E3 Collegiate Competition, which included more than 400 colleges. The placement means the BU team has a spot at the E3 Conference in Los Angeles next month. It’s thought to be the world’s largest gaming convention.

Ethan Ham, chair of Bradley's Interactive Media Department, says it’s a fantastic opportunity for the students and signifies a world-class video game development education at Bradley.
