GForces’ relationship with the University of Kent continues to flourish. We’ve been working alongside them for several years now, supporting them in terms of the curriculum and supporting the School of Engineering and Digital Arts’ awards. In fact, ‘The GForces Award’ is now well established in these awards, having been in place for five years.
On Tuesday 14th July, our own Director of Digital Media Services, Steven Lloyd-Barlow, attended Canterbury to present the GForces prize at the School of Engineering and Digital Arts’ Graduate Reception. This year, Max Bottomley was the well-deserving winner of the GForces Prize for Best 3D project (see left).
His project was entitled “Rabitat” and is a 3D action videogame made with Unreal 4 Engine – a suite of tools that enables developers to create eye-catching 2D and 3D games as well as virtual reality. We must extend our congratulations to Max not only on winning this prize, but also graduating from Kent this year with a BA in Digital Arts.
Catherine Butler, External Services Officer at the School of Engineering and Digital Arts commented; “On behalf of the School of Engineering and Digital Arts at Kent, I’d like to say a very big thank you to GForces for sponsoring such a generous prize for our Graduate Reception. GForces continues to support EDA in a number of ways – through providing industrial prizes, industrial placements, industrial talks/master classes and input into our Digital Media Industrial Panel. These help us and our students make the most of their time at University.”
