Board Games to Mobile Games

This project involves students as partners working on the conversion of various board games that have been developed by students at the Department of Politics and International relations to mobile games. The conversion of board games to mobile games was conducted by level 6 BSc Multimedia Computing and BSc Games Development students.

Here is a sample of projects that have been created as part of this project:

Riots in London

As part of SPIR516 Political Gaming module, three students (Annabel Caitlin, Daniel Rogerman and Abishake Ghandi) created a board game based on the London Riots in 2011. The game’s scope is to demonstrate the London Riots 2011, the way the event began and spread out, the dynamics of the people that were involved in the event, the rioters, the police, the effect of the event to the society. Andrej Korubov, a BSc Multimedia Computing student at the Dept. of Computer Science & Software Engineering converted this game to a mobile app for Android as his final year project in 2012/13.
