We would love all of you in lockdown to playtest our final year games. Due to Covid-19 our user testing sessions have had to go remote. So please share around your studios and constructive feedback is welcome and needed to enhance all of the student projects.

Our students not only make the games but these games are designed to talk to players and provide commentary on the world we live in, I am confident you will not only enjoy the games but see the depth of research and thinking that goes into each project.
