NEW: Becker College Students to Premier Video Game

Monday, April 02, 2012

 

A group of Becker College students has created a video game and comic that will debut at this weekend’s PAX East show in Boston.

Shadow Walker, designed by four Becker students, is both a comic book series and PC game that will be playable at Becker’s booth during the show inside the Boston Convention Center. The game was created by Becker seniors Matthew Hopkins and Ilir Mborja of Worcester, along with classmate Cody Olivier of Pascoag, RI, and junior Anthony Botelho of Dighton, MA.

“Four years ago we never thought we would release our senior project to 70,000 people at a show like PAX East,” Olivier said. “Through the experiences we have had at Becker—designing educational games for community and cultural organizations and receiving invaluable exposure to industry professionals—we are prepared to make the next best-seller, or create serious games.”

The game and comic revolve around Allen Foster, a man on the run from police after being framed by a madman for the murder of his own sister. At the beginning of the game, players learn the “power of shadow” along with Shadow Walker, and use those powers for the rest of the game.

2012 will be Becker’s fourth trip to PAX East, and Becker was one of only four schools to exhibit at the inaugural show in 2010. Becker College has one of the nation’s best video game design programs, and is leading the way in the Commonwealth as the home of the Massachusetts Digital Games Institute (MassDiGI), a statewide video game center designed for academic cooperation.
