Glu Mobile, Hyderabad, organized an exclusive workshop on level design for the students of Backstage Pass.
Techopedia defines level design as:
“…a game development discipline that involves the creation of video game levels, locales, missions or stages. This is done using some sort of level editor – software used in game development to construct digital environments. Level editors may also be included in released games to allow players to get creative and make their own levels and scenarios. Level design is both a technical and artistic process.
Level design is also known as environment design or game mapping.”
At the end of the three-hour workshop, Glu organized a level design contest for the students and 2 teams were declared the winners.
The senior students of the group also had an opportunity to apply for an internship at Glu Mobile.
The students’ response was amazing. They had 3 awesome things to say about their interaction.
The students were swept off their feet from the way Glu Mobile office was appointed. Casual, trendy, meticulous and a sense of exuberance, all blending into an overarching sense of freedom to think, create, and just be.
Even more appealing were the friendly workshop coordinators and the staff who interacted with the students. When asked if they would like to work for Glu on graduating, there was a thundering and unanimous ‘aye”.
The students also felt that the way level design was explained was awesome. And given a chance, they would like to appear for more workshops and want to learn character design and artificial intelligence (AI).
Thanks to the Glu Mobile team who got the students excited beyond words.
