Fourth year students from Sheridan’s Honours Bachelor of Game Design program were the big winners at the 2017 Level Up Student Showcase held in Toronto. Winning 10 of the 12 awards available in the four categories of Best Overall Game, Technical Innovation, Artistic Achievement and People’s Choice, Sheridan students demonstrated their exceptional talents in the field.
Congratulations to the team from OddBird Studio on winning both Best in Show and Best Artistic Achievement in the sixth annual Level Up Student Showcase, held earlier this week in Toronto. Now in its sixth year, the Level Up Student Showcase puts the next generation of game developers at the forefront, highlighting Ontario’s top postsecondary talent in the field of game design. The competition included over 100 games submitted by various schools including OCADU, Algonquin, UOIT and the University of Toronto. Past winners of the Best in Show category have gone on to achieve commercial success; the 2014 winner was released on the Nintendo Wii U, with 2015’s winner slated for release this year on Steam, a popular online gaming forum. This year, over 1000 people attended the Level Up Showcase.
