Student game project shortlisted for BAFTA competition

Games Development Level 3 student, Aden Fawcett, submitted his game “TimeCoil” to BAFTA after being informed about the contest by his College tutors, who recommended he enter.

When catching up with Aden, he said: “This is a very big step for the opportunities that I have, especially when using this competition in CV’s for jobs and anything like that. It’s a really cool and interesting concept for a game that I feel could go pretty far if its more developed perhaps by adding more storylines and an expanded world.”
