COMP09042 re-assessment session 2009-10
Computer Games Technology Group Project

Develop a one-level, 3D game, using a C++ environment, to provide around 3-5 minutes of gameplay. The game will be developed using a C++ engine and will be a 3D game. You must clear your game engine proposal and game idea with the lecturer before proceeding:

You should create a plan which should divide up the tasks, flag weekly reviews of progress, and keep a record of work done and progress made. You must gather together the tools and resources necessary to create the game and negotiate any specific extra resource requirements with third parties.

There is an onus on you to act professionally and ethically with respect to their own actions, how they relate to others, how they act in relation to third party IPR, etc. If in doubt, ask the lecturer: .

The work must be completed by Friday 27th August at 12pm. All the work should be clearly accessible via your TuDocs e-portfolio page.
