Mr. Whyte works for Rockstar, one of the most successful computer gaming companies. He took the students through the key elements in the development of computer games. He explored the wide variety of different roles available in the industry ranging from story writers to artists as well as programmers, testers and production managers.
He showed the students how they can develop their interest in the industry through the exploration of a wide variety of apps some of which the students were already familiar with from their coursework. The students asked lots of questions particularly on how profits can be made from the games!
Mr. Ricketts plans to focus on coding and game making applications this term so the presentation was very timely.
