A new racing app is hoping to revolutionise the way we interact with the world around us.
However, in order to race on these tracks, gamers have to be physically present in the real world locations the tracks represent, similar to players visiting a PokéStop or Gym in ‘Pokémon Go’.
50 students spent three months creating the PlayStation 4 game, with the table version being delivered in just six weeks. Most console games within the industry are developed in 12 to 21 months, with three to six months devoted to gaming apps on average, which makes this game a rather incredible achievement.
Students showcased both versions of the game to gaming industry professionals, including developers from Sony, Codemasters and Rare.
Luke Savage, Senior Academic Development Manager at Sony Interactive Entertainment, who attended yesterday’s launch, said:
These students are the next generation of PlayStation game developers, and we want to give them the best opportunities to become part of our developer community.
