Two iPhone games produced in 12 working days during UK event Gamer Camp: Nano are now available on the Apple App Store. The games were built during a month-long game developer training course at Birmingham City University. The game are free to download. The two games, They Came From the Deep and Aliens vs. Humans, were created by thirteen trainee artists and programmers working together in teams. The one month course is a scaled down version of the full 12-month long Masters version of the course, Gamer Camp: Pro, which starts in September.
"In terms of work produced in a month, it's been amazing," said Tomas Boxwell, a graduate from Gamer Camp: Nano. "It’s a really good opportunity to create a game in such as short space of time. It's probably the best month you could invest in, in terms of what you get out of it."
Gamer Camp: Mini, which lets would-be designers study the first 3 or 8 months of Gamer Camp: Pro to receive a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma from Birmingham City University, also launches this month. Each qualification on Mini is worth 60 credits and costs £2,700, allowing students to study Gamer Camp: Pro’s full MA or MSc in Video Games Development (£8,000 for EU students, £10,050 for non-EU) over several years if they want to.
