The Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy (FIEA), a graduate videogame development program, is debuting its latest student game, MASTER PLAN, at SIGGRAPH 2007 in booth #243 in San Diego.
MASTER PLAN is a 3D action game where players construct their own doomsday machine to ravage a city. MASTER PLAN was developed by 34 students and has features never seen before in a student-produced game. Students developed all the tools and pipelines from scratch, including a world editor, vehicle editor with tutorial and fully destructible city environment.
Copies of MASTER PLAN are available in booth #243 where faculty and students who worked on the project are on hand to discuss the development. For more info on the game, go to www.masterplangame.com.
