In our university, 3rd grade students are studying game development using Unity3D in the lecture called "Animation Study". Students are required to plan and create their original 3D/2D game with Unity3D. For most students, game development is a first trial (some of them did not even make any 3D models before). They studied Blender and Unity3D, that I introduced in the lecture. Also, some students studied Metasequoia or Google Sketchup to emphasize their work. Finally, their works are forming into a game.
The evaluation of their games is done by public voting on the Web. If they get many votes, they will get a good mark!
I am building the voting system with Slim3 and AppEngine/J. They are really powerful!
You will be able to vote with Google and Mixi OpenID. Also you can use Twitter authentication.
Something like "Like" from Facebook will be supported as well.
It will start on 26th of January, if there is no problem. We hope that many people get interested in the trial. We will post the link for our voting system on the blog later.
Please vote for their games!
