Futureworks Degree Show

If you've been following progress with 'Digital Dark Age' you'll know that I've recently completed my degree in music production with Futureworks here in Manchester, where I've been studying since September last year (after doing the first two years of my course online).

Each terminal will essentially be the starting point for each corresponding song on the album, and offer information to the player as they play through the level. I'd love to say I know how to create an … Continue reading Terminals: Digital Dark Age
