Husky Game Development (HGD), a student Enterprise focused on video game development, won Honorable Mention accolades at Michigan Tech’s Design Expo 2020, presented virtually this April.
The HGD winning project, “Lost in Mazie Mansion,” is a 2D mystery-puzzle game. To win, you’ll need the help of Mazie. But you’ll have to play by the house’s rules, dodge monsters patrolling the halls, solve puzzles, and find the keys to get Mazie’s memory back.
HGD team leads are CS undergraduates Colin Arkens and Xixi Tian; faculty advisor is Scott Kuhl, Computer Science. The team was sponsored by the Pavlis Honors College’s Enterprise Program. View a video about the game here.
HGD teams experience a full game development cycle, including ideation, design, and end product. Students explore a wide variety of video game engines and platforms, including Windows, Android, Xbox, and an experimental Display Wall.
