Students from the Digital Media program traveled to Raleigh, NC in April to attend the Triangle Games Conference. The students took the opportunity to show current game development projects that they are working on for the Level Design Classes being offered at ETSU. Designers from Insomniac and Epic said they where excited at the quality of work the students showed and impressed with the amount of work accomplished in the time period allowed for by the project. The students thought it was a great opportunity and that it was encouraging to hear from industry professionals that their work showed well.
