Stillorgan College of Further Education is pleased to announce that a virtual village touch screen game that the Multimedia students in the college developed has been chosen for the Feilte Showcase in the RDS in October 2015. The game, aptly named ‘Imagino-city’, was developed for the children’s museum Imaginosity, in Sandyford. The game will also go live in Imaginosity at the start of the summer.
This is the fourth game that the Multimedia and Multimedia with Games courses at Stillorgan College have made for the Museum. Multimedia teacher and Head of Department, Sarah Carroll Kelly has welcomed the successful application as it “highlights the high standard of work done by the students here”. She also commented that “the project is a miniature version of the 2nd floor of the museum complete with an array of characters and scenarios designed and programmed by the students. They include a cow that turns into a pint of milk, a rocket/tower driven by a robot holding Rapunzel hostage and my favourite - a submarine that when interacted with, sprouts some legs and runs off into the sea.”
The game will be added to the three other touch screens previously made by the college as part of the Museum’s collection. They include a ‘Make a Stamp’ game in the post office, ‘An Eco Trail’ game in the construction section and a ‘Health and Nutrition’ game in the medical bay.
