Mr. Bendis’ mobile apps are all published via Lemming Labs Limited.
Game Design is generally a team sport. Game Design students at CIA start building team games their Junior year. During the 2013/2014 academic year a new approach was taken, designed to teach students to be more self-sufficient in their design (& development) of video game projects based on the Golden Age of Arcade Games. Mostly Space Invaders & Pac-Man.
