A talk by Mr. Alan Duca from 5 and 1/4 games was given to Bsc students completing the EISD module.  Mr. Duca presented his company’s game scripting engine and explained some of the technical details behind the game that is being designed.

In the second part of the talk, various ways the students could help the game development company were explored.  This was a very productive meeting and we look forward to collaborating with this company in the near future.
