Behrend Students Develop Their Own Video Games

Posted: Updated:


Students at Penn State Behrend this weekend were designing their own video games.

It was part this year's Global Game Jam. Over 10,000 game developers across the world had just 48 hours to create their own video game.

Its the first time Behrend has taken part in the contest. Four different teams came own concepts all based off the sound of a heart beat.

"Its very cool to actually sit down and sometimes you have to learn on the fly," said sophomore engineering major Stephen Chalker. "We're using an engine we haven't used before, and we're learning as we're going. Its just an awesome experience to just make a game."

You can check out their games, and play them, here.
