Over the past 40 years, the video game industry has grown from relative obscurity to a multibillion dollar global business.
Green Pixel is a small Ontario start-up located in London that was working on the development of a new role-playing adventure video game. Their web and mobile games, including Pocolypse, had already attracted thousands of players, and fans were ready for a new offering from the company.
Green Pixel engaged Humber’s Game Programming expertise to help develop Eternal Journey, their newest video game. The program coordinator for the Game Programming Advanced Diploma worked with Green Pixel project manager Fredd Eyles and game programming students to develop the online game. The Eternal Journey project provided an opportunity for students to apply class-based learning to help an industry partner in the development cycle of the game from prototype, through alpha and beta testing, to the game’s release.
“We can’t thank Humber Research enough for how much it helped and opened our eyes to the possibilities that research, Humber, and students can do for such a small studio,” said Fredd Eyles.
By providing a new and unique experience for their gaming consumers, Green Pixel have expanded their product line and positioned themselves as leaders in the mobile applications and interactive digital media markets. The game has been launched, and is now available here.
