Matthew Whitby wins Best Game Design Award

This year’s Best Game Design Award at the University of Portsmouth‘s Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries has been won by Matthew Whitby, who created a computer game that took place both on the computer and in the real world as a part of his final year project. 

“Throughout his time at university Matt has created outstanding and original game designs,” says Dr Mark Eyles of the School of Creative Technologies. “He produced an innovative game that merged real and virtual worlds.”

As well as winning the award, Matt has had a paper published.

“Following a very good dissertation, Matthew has been successful in adapting his work into a paper,” says Dr Peter Howell. “This is great news for the research group and a good basis from which to continue to push our undergraduates and their research work.”

Mathew’s paper has been published in The Computer Games Journal, a new and growing Springer-owned publication. The paper can be found here.
