Student Project: Project Butterflies


PROJECT NAME: Project Butterflies (Capstone/Thesis) ROLE: Capstone Adviser TEAM: Miracle Games (credits at the very bottom) INSTITUTION: De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde NOTE: Click the images to enlarge.

Whenever my students defend their thesis/capstone projects, it makes me ever so thankful that I have not returned to mainstream game development. Seriously, I have half a mind to hard sell my books just so I can afford to publish their games myself. This level of satisfaction and sense More >
