A game request from a young Cedars’ student during a Year 10 Information Software Technology (IST) class developed in Daniel West a passion for gaming.
Daniel says, ‘We were tasked with taking a request from a Junior School student and creating a game to fit their prompt. I enjoyed it so much I ended up working on games in my own time.’
The activity kicked off a life long interest.
‘Since then, I’ve also applied the knowledge I learned in Physics and Math class, like vectors and gravitation. Also, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention all those hours spent playing games in the Library after school.’
Daniel recently designed and developed Airscape: Fall of Gravity which has won a raft of awards including the Winner of Intel level Up 2014 Best Use of Game Physics and PAX Australia Australian Indie Showcase.
He was featured in the Wall Street Journal.
