Train2Game Launches Student Competition for Avenging Angel

July 29, 2011 -

Train2Game, a UK-based game industry training course company, has launched its latest competition in association with BAFTA-nominated writer and director Trix Worrell. The competition will see the winning game concept entry accompany the feature film Avenging Angel. The goal of this latest competition is to help students expand their portfolios and prove their merit by providing real world examples of work that has been "judged at the highest standards."

Avenging Angel is described as an "ambitious multi-platform feature film and graphic novel funded by the UK Film Council and produced by growing UK studio, A Box of Trix." Entrants will be required to design one of two games referenced in the fiction of the story - either a full web game created by one of the characters and featuring online avatar creation and UGC or a smaller smartphone game based on Hangman, which also turns out to be the source of a dark force in the community.

The winning entries will also take home tickets to a London movie premiere for each team member, as well as days on set during productions to learn how the movie is developed and produced. iTunes vouchers will also be up for grabs to the best projects so that students can extend their knowledge of other gaming offerings currently on the market.

"Train2Game concentrates on selecting only the most able talent for its courses so we’re as pleased as the students for every opportunity to demonstrate their abilities," said Tony Bickley, Course Director at Train2Game. "Equipping students with skills and experiences to give them the edge in a competitive industry is a key priority and aim for our course.”

Re: Train2Game Launches Student Competition for Avenging Angel

Train2Game are the Scientologists of video game development - they come out with a pushy sales pitch, give you a 'test' that anyone who hasnt been living under a rock could pass, and pretend you're a budding VIDEO GAME DESIGN GENIUS.  The first thing people see when they start training is material written by someone else and posted on the internet.  How they get all the nice deals is beyond me, seems like its more who you know than what you know.

MaskedPixelanteDude was at the center of a pretty serious plagiarism scandal back in 2011, and it was widely known he ripped off other musical pieces well before that.12/27/2014 - 9:33am
Kajex@Masked Right, because his work actually composing music for several Metroid games necessitated plagiarism.12/27/2014 - 9:04am
MaskedPixelanteI can't believe Kenji Yamamoto got another job. Then again, his job on Smash was "musical arrangment", so copying other people's work is right up his alley.12/26/2014 - 9:31pm
Matthew Wilsonthe company that hosts it is a cyber security firm, and from what I understand it is the data they they see just shown publicly.12/26/2014 - 8:22pm

Matthew Wilsonits a bunch of script kiddies. ddosing is one of the easiest thing to do,and most companies can not stop it sadly.12/25/2014 - 5:05pm
MaskedPixelanteI like Nintendo as much as the next person, they're pretty much the only company putting out the games I want to play, but that was pretty embarassing to have NNID go down due to overuse.12/25/2014 - 4:35pm
MaskedPixelanteSee? It's NOT a repeat of last year's fiasco.12/25/2014 - 4:22pm

IanCOh shut up bitching about Nintendo. At least they advised people to downloading updates before the big day. Sony/MS? Not a peep.12/25/2014 - 3:50pm
MaskedPixelanteBoth PSN and Xbox Live are down. Since I'm sure Sony and Microsoft have better online support than Nintendo did last year, this isn't from "everyone logging onto their new devices all at once".12/25/2014 - 3:48pm
