Sarah Akers and Will Butterworth visit Uclan Games Design

It was great to have a visit this week from our Alumni, Sarah Akers and Will Butterworth who have been working since they graduated last year at Paw Print Games Studios in Chester.

Paw Print Games are an independent studio located in the North West of England developing unique games for iOS, Android, BlackBerry PlayBook, BB10, Windows Phone 8.

Sarah and Will are both 3D Prop | Environment Artists and have learned a lot about working with Unity and VR since joining Paw Print studios last year.
They are about to launch a brand new game so we'll be keeping our eyes out for news about that.

Sarah and Will discussed their time at Uclan on the games design course and gave helpful advice to students about how to make the best of their study time and also encouraged students to join games jams and connect with others who are involved in Games design.

They also checked out the VR games that are currently being made by our students as part of UCLan's Games Jam 2017.
