Will they be future producers?
"It's more interesting than many so-called industry dry goods activities."
At the final of the Tencent NEXT IDEA University Game Creative Production Competition (hereinafter referred to as the NI Game Contest) on Friday, November 23, Grape King exchanged his experience with his peers in the media area as usual, when a media peer was nearing the end This evaluation is given.
Although "interesting" is a very personal subjective feeling, when you sit on the sidelines with the judges on the stage and watch ten teams from different colleges introduce their games on the stage, you will still be attracted by some moments.
The only personal producer on the scene, junior student Xie Zefan defeated the other nine teams and won the gold medal. At the end of the award speech, he said emotionally, "One last point, I want to thank myself, and thank myself for developing around the clock over the past 8 months, countless insomnias, wanting to play, and thinking of not falling asleep, I have achieved today Yourself. "
Ye Zitao from Nanjing University, he has made an experimental work that tries to convey emotional experience and cultural identity of foreigners in Hong Kong. The judges were not touched at the scene, but the game moved an audience who had tried it in the experience area. Pursued by the judges, the audience also talked about why she was moved by the game. "I saw his emotional world in his eyes, and it also reflected my emotional experience. What I saw was goodwill and It's wonderful, it's especially rare. "
In general, Grape King has participated in road shows in this form, and also participated in many enthusiastic and creative independent game activities. But this NI game competition will still give people a completely different experience. Maybe it is because these students' speeches, although they can hear the innocence of many people in their speech skills, they can still feel their pure love for making games; maybe the random bridge mentioned above happened on the scene, let the activity It's a little bit more storytelling; maybe these entries are more complete than they expected.
Before the finals began, Weibo's "Wandering and Playing Games" issued a Weibo, which is called Tencent's internal core information, and said that "this is the ten most promising games in the future." From the point of view, it turned out to be the product promotion video of the NI game competition entering the final. Although the title party is suspected, it also illustrates the high expectations of Tencent Game Academy for the entire NI game competition.
Frankly speaking, half of the ten works have already made Grape King interested only through live speeches. Grape King sitting at the scene reminded himself from time to time, "This art style is really good and very mature. This is from the hands of students." Consider it "," He speaks very well, the logic is clear, and the understanding of the game is deep, wait ... is he a junior? "
"Edge of Color" was created by Xie Zefan, a junior in software development at South China Normal University. Xie Zefan, who has been playing the game for 15 years, although he has been a game editor, has only taught himself about one year of game development. One person completes everything from planning, fine arts to procedures, allowing him to finally complete this product after 8 months.
"Color Edge" is an arcade-oriented erasing mobile game. Its core gameplay is very simple, the finger slides the ball to the edge of the same color to complete the score.
In order to make the player's stimulating experience more prominent, Xie Zefan also added a combo system based on the core gameplay. When multiple balls are eliminated at one time, the combo can be triggered, and the higher the number of combos, the higher the score. And when eliminating 4 small balls, you can also instantly remove all other small balls. Seemingly simple operation, because the combo system is added, so that the game has some easy to use, difficult to master the depth of operation.
