Student Showcase

Showcase Trophy

Alex came to the Ocean Spark Academy for a 5 day course to introduce him to game development.

During his time at the academy, Alex created his very own playable video game which taught him some of the fundemental skills needed and software used in the gaming industry.

Alex used industry software to create his game 'Snalix - The Adventures of Ellies Poop'

The game that Alex created is imaginative and funny yet still requires a good amount of skill and practice to complete the goals that have been set for the player.

Before coming to the Ocean Spark Academy, Alex said he wanted to make games because he wanted to make people smile and we think he did just that! Well done Alex.
