A spokesperson said, “Local development company Bermuda Island Games, under the parent company Supatone Ltd., has formally announced the first annual competition for designing a video game this March at Warwick Academy.”
Founder Adrian Lodge said, “We have seen local talent in terms of playing games, or E-Sports, but we also want to encourage Bermuda residents to show off their creative skills and build their own games as well.
“This competition will help to get like-minded people to work on something they are passionate about and use modern technology to do it.”
“The video game design challenge will include an introduction to basic video game design on Friday March 27th, and teams will work on designing their game on Saturday March 28th.
