Senior Game Exhibit: LilyLeap
The Becker College game design seniors on team Maple Games have been hard at work on their senior project, a prototype of a game called LilyLeap in which the player guides a frog from lily pad to lily pad.
“We took on this project as a way for our team to create a fun mobile game that could be built in a single semester,” says team producer Ian Hunter. “That way we could focus on building the app’s structure properly and learn a lot more about developing features that we didn’t have much previous experience with.”
Hunter and teammates Jason Cohen, Anthony Dirago, Zach Peterson, Alex Condon, and Alyssa Quaresima have found it challenging to work together with everyone being pulled in so many directions by other classes and commitments, but through continuous communication they have been able to conquer issues that may plague other teams.
According to Hunter, the biggest highlight of LilyLeap is its minimalistic art style, which has been applauded by players. “We plan to continue to use this style and make it even more appealing as we polish up the game,” he said.
The game design senior projects were exhibited on campus in November. View a clip of LilyLeap gameplay.
