Congratulations Craig, Team Gandalf are one of the winners of the Train2Game & Epic Game Jam,as team leader, how do you feel?
A bit dumbstruck but absolutely over the moon! We had such a fantastic team, they did such an
amazing job. It almost felt as if it was going too well, we’ve had a brilliant weekend, just brilliant.
And what does it mean to you to be one of the four teams going to The Gadget Show Live to MakeSomething Unreal Live next year?
fantastic opportunity, we couldn’t have asked for anything better. It’s such a hard thing to get
into, but this should really help us get into careers and with everything really.
Tell us a bit about your Guy Fawkes themed game
What we were aiming for was almost a Medieval Portal style game and we had a fantasy theme withpuzzle rooms. Basically, you
re the guy who dobbed in the whole Gunpowder plot scheme andyou
re being chased by the ghost of Guy Fawkes and it
s very psychological, we went for dark roomsand an almost horror like game.
So how did your team find the whole Train2Game & Epic Game Jam experience?
A lot of learning went on, we had such a range of skills in our team. You could tell as we were gettingtowards the end of the jam the levels were getting better, our knowledge was getting much, muchbetter and it was just flowing really well and we felt like such a good team together.
