Game design students of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) dominated the list of finalists in the Game On competition of the recent e-Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS).
Ten other universities and colleges, namely Asia Pacific College, CIIT Philippines, De La Salle University, FEU Institute of Technology, Holy Angel University, iAcademy, Jose Rizal University, Mapua University, San Sebastian College-Recoletos, Manila, and University of St. La Salle likewise put forth their best games for the tournament.
School of Management and Information Technology (SMIT)-Game Design & Development Program Chairperson Norman Lee confirmed Benildean finalists comprised 11 out of a total of 32 entries.
Games by the college featured at the event were Terminus, Enter the Exit, Into the Light, Morpheus, Responsum, Spell Weaver, Santelmo, Gestalt, NOIR, Tear of the Forest, and Of False Gods and Mad Kings.
At last year’s ESGS, DLS-CSB Game Design students took home the lion’s share of prizes, including the much-coveted Game of the Year for Tesselate, the joint creation of students Vincent Layog, Erickson Melchor, Joshua Soya Joshua, and Paul Andrada.
Organized by the Game Design Association of the Philippines (GDAP), the three-day event is an annual showcase of the best and the newest in the world of gaming, ranging from top game publishers, independent game developers and games on PC, consoles and mobile.
During the competition, entries were showcased in the Game On area, where leading and seasoned game development industry experts tested and experienced the students’ creations.
