Students to Create educational video Game Inspired by Climate Change Goals
The next generation of video games designers are playing their part in the race to ‘net zero’ thanks to a partnership between a Scottish university and thermal energy company.
Ahead of the Cop26 climate change conference in Glasgow later this year, Abertay University and SSE Thermal have challenged a group of students to create an educational video game which focuses on carbon capture and storage (CCS) – a vital tool in decarbonisation efforts.
A game jam – a contest where participants try to make a video game from scratch – was held in July at the Dundee-based university, with various teams submitting ideas for an interactive game inspired by CCS.
A judging panel, including figures from leading Scottish game design studios Junkfish and Biome Collective, selected the winning entry.
