Student projects are added irregularly and in no particular order. These are projects stretching back to 2002, from students in their 1st, 2nd and 3rd year and using vastly different tech. Thus; we recommend you use the tag cloud to the right to filter the projects you’re interested in!
Penalty of Heroes is an old school side scrolling hack ’n slash game much like Golden Axe mixed with Secret of Mana. It takes advantage of the power of the Xbox 360 in order to show off a mix between 2D and 3D, using modern shaders and effects.
Penalty of Heroes takes place in the world of Nimo where you control four young warriors, either by yourself in single player mode or with the help from up to three of your friends in co-op mode. Fight your way through ten levels containing hordes of enemies, big bosses and an engaging narrative. You will have unique characters with different magics and weapons, as well as a customizable powerup system to aid you on the journey to find out the price of becoming a hero.

Exhaust is the first physics based 2.5D monster truck racing game to ever hit the market. Even though it is called a racing game, the use of dynamic objects and physics has given us the option of adding loads of interesting artifacts to the racing tracks which turns this monster truck racer into an incredible platform game.
