Unfortunately we didn't win, but we did get many compliments about how amazing Goliath looked & how far we'd taken it as far as a student game. We got plently of interest from publishers and many leads on what direction to take Goliath to get it to the next step in bringing a full product to the market place.
In the last two months Goliath has been entered in a number of awards & some of the competition results are in.
Goliath took out the Crowbar Awards & received Silver the highest award for the Interactive Games category.
At TUANZ (e)-vision Awards it received the Craft Award for interactive media displaying expertise in specific areas of development.
We're also in the running for the following competitions coming up within the next few months:
Level 11 Games, in association with Media Design School, today announced the development of Goliath, a unique action game currently in the works for PC.
Going beyond the simple 'drive around and shoot everything' mechanics associated with the words 'vehicle combat', Goliath places the player in a team environment with goals such as repairing objective buildings, escorting unarmed vehicles and preventing the discovery of key locations. Along with this press release is the launch of GoliathGame.com, the official website for the project, which contains information, screenshots and videos for the project, as well as information about the team behind it.
Level 11 Games is located in Auckland, NZ. It is the graduating class of the first intake of Media Design School's Graduate Diploma in Game Development.
Media Design School is a small, specialised school that "provides expert training in digital media, design, visual effects and motion graphics, 3D animation, game development, communication and information technology". More information at: www.mediadesign.school.nz
