Teddington student part of record breaking gaming effort
A student from Teddington was part of a group to break the Guinness World Record for the largest game jam in a single location.
Dan Rutter was one of nearly 300 students who took part in the Microsoft and Train2Game event that saw them create a new video game in 48 hours.
The art and animator student, 32, said: “I managed to grab three hours’ sleep at my desk but it’s amazing how far adrenaline, excitement and a little fear will take you.
“It was an extraordinary weekend - fantastic people and an extremely successful event.”
The theme of the game jam, which took place at the University of Bedfordshire earlier this month, was Pride of London.
It led the students to create a game called Torch Runner, involving a torch runner jumping over taxis and potholes while trying to run as far as possible.
