Three Students Participate in Nationwide Train Jam
Three students in our video game development program, the only such program in Kentucky, are enjoying a unique trans-continental experience: a 52-hour Train Jam on which they and 27 students from across the U.S., Netherlands and Australia are developing games while on an Amtrak trip from Chicago to California.
The event, which culminates with the students demonstrating their games at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco March 2-6, allows our trio to go through the same steps of design and development, but with a team of professional and amateur developers they have never met.
Besides providing an enrichment activity for the students, their participation in the Train Jam and Conference raises the national profile of the EKU program.
Participating students are Mark Cahalan, Austin Areaux and Daniel Marifjeren.
