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 recently featured in the Wall Street Journal.
