OUR COMPUTER ENGINEERING STUDENTS HAVE DEVELOPED A VIDEO GAME BY THE NAME OF/CALLED “THE SIGNAL” WITH SUPPORT FROM THE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH FUND
Our project named “Open World Game Development with Integrated Virtual Reality”, under the consultancy of Dr. Gizem Kayar and Dr. Selen Pehlivan from the Department of Computer Engineering, became eligible to receive a LAD grant last year. With this grant, our students Berk Cebeci and Kemal Çağlar, who are the members of the project team, developed a video game called “The Signal”.
The game, “The Signal”, has been developed to be played on an Xbox game console, and to be playable on “360 Kinect”. The movements of the user are transferred to the virtual environment via data that come through the Xbox 360 Kinect sensors. The user can jump levels by using his body movements and this feature can be used by two players/users. The subject/theme of the game is the transformation of humans into zombies because of a drug that a company named Vexillum produced in the year 2048 to be able to meet the demand for drinking water.
