Becker College, the #4 best school in the world to study game design, will be showcasing PermaDeath, the first-ever video game opera, and other upcoming game titles at PAX East 2018. Drop by booth #10058 to play and experience our games, and see firsthand why Becker’s Interactive Media Design major is internationally acclaimed. Visitors will have a chance to meet the masterminds behind Becker’s games, as well as talk to the writers, artists, and digital content creators of PermaDeath. Plus, experts from the Massachusetts Digital Games Institute (MassDiGI) at Becker and PermaDeath producers will participate on panels about the booming popularity of collegiate esports, the value of a game design education, and the making of the world’s first video game opera. Also, visit our booth to learn about Becker’s newly launched Master of Fine Arts in Interactive Media.

We will demo an array of action-packed games created by our Interactive Media Design students. Here is the full schedule, and some highlights:

PermaDeath video game opera. Watch the gods of the 21st century battle it out in cyber space in an epic fight to the death. Who will be left standing?

Jaywalker is an interactive, mixed-reality experience developed for the Microsoft Hololens, in which the player is dropped in the middle of a holographic highway and must move around in real physical space to dodge oncoming virtual traffic.

Tour de Death is a VR exergame utilizing the VirZoom bicycle controller. The player must cycle through a post-apocalyptic cityscape dodging, shooting, and jumping over hostile zombies.
