Do you have a game you’d like to develop?

We are recruiting clients to work with final year Games Design and Games Technology students to develop games based on the needs of university staff.  Throughout the course of their Advanced Games Design unit, these students will work in groups to liaise with their assigned member of staff to design, develop, test and evaluate a complete game.

Previous examples have included games to raise awareness of the causes of atherosclerosis, to educate children about animal behaviours and to immerse the user in a paranormal investigation.

If you are interested in working with a group of students, we ask just a few things:

  • Please complete this form to describe your requirements and send it to Matthew Crossley (crossley@mmu.ac.uk) and Kevin Tan (k.tan@mmu.ac.uk) before 19th September 2016
  • Please be prepared to meet with your assigned students briefly approximately once a fortnight to discuss your requirements, and to ensure the game being developed meets your needs
  • Please be willing to complete a short evaluation survey of your student’s game at the end of the year
  • Please be supportive and encouraging of the students.  The games produced will not be AAA titles made on multi-million pound budgets (sadly), but we have had some good work produced in previous years.

We need between 10 and 12 clients, so please submit your ideas to us! You are free to use the games for any purpose once they are developed, and the games will be showcased at the end of the year in an end-of-year celebration event, which can be an excellent way to garner some publicity.

If you’d like to chat beforehand or have any questions, please do get in touch.

We look forward to receiving your ideas!
