When the new batch of DADIU students create their graduation games later this year, they will be making games for tablets.
After many years with browser games, DADIU has decided to test out new grounds. The games will be made for Android tablets with Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 as the target platform, but the teams can choose to put the game out on iOS afterwards as well.
The Danish Games journalist, Jesper Krogh Kristiansen, backs the development. ’It makes a lot of sense for DADIU to move into tablet development. First of all because it is where the games industry – both locally and internationally – is moving. But also because it will make the journey from student production to commercial game developer much shorter’.
The New Games will be ready in December
The more than 100 new DADIU students will be starting in late August. They are coming from all of DADIU’s member institutions and will be spending the semester immersed in games. In November and December, they will be working on the graduation games. The new graduation games will be available for Android from December 13th, where Jesper Krogh Kristiansen and everyone else can play them. ’Personally, I look forward to seeing what games the students will develop in this new format. DADIU is known for its high artistic level so I am quite intrigued to see what they will do with the touch interface.’
The games will still be made in the Unity engine.
