Train2Game students design game for UK Film Council film

Train2Game, a provider of games industry training courses, has announced that a team of its students has won a competition to design a game that will be part of £5m UK Film Council feature film, Avenging Angels.

Competition entrants were required to design one of two games referenced in the fiction of the story, with the winners seeing their game become part of the film itself, as well as being considered for public release to accompany it.

The winning entry, selected by BAFTA-nominated writer and director, Trix Worrell, was praised for visualising the idea so clearly. He said: "The quality of entries has been amazing and it was a very tough decision to pick a single winner. However, when you read a design document that fleshes the concept out for you, it's hard not to immediately get excited and picture where it could go."

The Train2Game students were invited to a lunch and creative discussion at BAFTA's HQ, and received a commitment by the director and producer to share more details of the script so that the game may develop further.

Tony Bickley, course director at Train2Game said: "This is further proof that Train2Game students produce the kind of competitive, well-developed work that the industry is looking for. Between these regular competitions and our extensive placement scheme, we're committed to getting them the real world experience they need to build up a healthy portfolio."

Previous competitions featuring Train2Game students have resulted in full releases like Postal Panic, currently available on the App Store for iPad.

Created in 2008, Train2Game offers courses in games design, development, art and animation, certified by UK's games industry trade association TIGA.
