The Sunday Times dated February 26th 2012 featured an interesting article about creativity in the technology centrefold, and part of the article included  an interview with myself and nine other participants in the GameDev Challenge.  We were asked several questions about the GameDev Challenge such as; why we chose to participate? what makes a good game? what makes a good team? and others which you can follow in the link below:

The game “Scarfish” which my team, Barbagann Games were working on the last six months placed 3rd at the GameDev Challenge 2011 organised by St. Martins Insitute of IT.  The next real proving point is when the app is released on Android and iOS markets. We will also know the results for GameZing 2011 in January 2012. 

In the meantime, enjoy our introductory storyboard: 

Battles on the Horizon along with the other games which competed in GameZing Digital Games Production 2010 were mentioned on a feature in ‘The Times’ both on the newspaper, and also on the online version.

I would like to thank St. Martins Institute of IT and especially Neville Attard along with all the members of my team; Anthony Demanuele, Robert Vella, Clive Ciappara and Duncan Mercieca for such a great experience.

Continuing on my previous post, we have now released the BETA version of our video game and I am posting the trailer here.

As you can see in the trailer, the game is mainly about trading, and naval battles.  We are working really hard to polish the game and hopefully our GameZing submission should be ready by the end of November.

Feel free to comment and give your ideas about the game.
