I dataspelens sociala värld

Filed under: Publicity in May 3, 2010, by Ulf Benjaminsson. Print This

Fyra killar sätter fart på fyra stora kulor som är fästa i spelbordet. På skärmen rullar kullarna i samma takt och riktning som de fyra snurrar på kulorna. Killarna spelar med hela kroppen och skrattar oavbrutet. Spelet är uppenbart så barnsligt att de inte kan hålla sig för skratt. Efter några minuter är det över och de fyra spelarna vandrar vidare.

Jag stannar kvar och talar med Nehmo Tapio och Markus Mattfolk Stenberg som gjort spelet under sin utbildning på Gotlands Högskola. Game är en treårig utbildning med inriktning på spelutveckling, speldesign och programmering. Nehmo och Markus tror att dataspel där man rör sig, så kallade physical interactive play, kommer att växa snabbt under de närmaste åren.

Gotlands Allehanda: “Högskolan får godkänt”

Högskoleverket (Swedish National Agency for Higher Education) is the public authority that oversees higher education institutions in Sweden. They recently performed a quality audit of Gotland University, and GAME earned a special mention! HSV acknowledged how we “work with industry contacts, business relations and former students to continually develop the education and keeping it relevant for the job market”.

We also work very hard to keep our staff educated, updated and in contact with the industry. Over the years we’ve built a strong reputation and a massive international network, enabling us to invite guest lecturers from all over the world on a regular basis. Furthermore – several of our staff are also actively working in the industry.

The report was not published in English, but hopefully the automatic translation is legible.

Our collaboration with Tokyo Tech has been ongoing for three years. Our Department head Steven Bachelder visited Tokyo a couple of months ago and this week we had Professor Akihiko Shirai and Professor Masayuki Nakajima on the island, to discuss our future plans together and to hold a world class workshop with our students.
