Stage 2 Programming

Search For A Star & Sumo Digital Rising Star 2019


Development Project

Students are asked to adapt and improve upon an existing Unity C# project, developing upon a basic framework to create a playable, finished game. The style and creative direction of the game is yours to choose. Students will need to plan & create additional content, including the development & implementation of gameplay, design & technical features, finally publishing the game as a finished product.

Full project briefs, supporting documents & access to the base project will be released to registered students on 29th October 2018.

This project is designed to emulate the aspects of a studio development process, including developing from an existing code base.

Please note this jam is only open to students who have registered to take part in Search For A Star / Sumo Digital Rising Star 2019 - further details on the challenge series can be found over at Grads In Games.
