Comet Cats purrs into action
By Timothy Loew, executive director, MassDiGI
Comet Cats, a free and fun mobile game in which you stack cats to reach towering new heights is now available to download on the Apple App Store and Google Play. The game was created during the 2016 MassDiGI Summer Innovation Program (SIP) by students Tyler Haddad and Ben Page from Becker, Joe Marchuk from Berklee, Sienna Cornish from Hampshire, Fury Sheron from Tufts, Abby Jackson from Wheaton (MA) and Graham Held from WPI.
Working over that summer, the team produced a playable beta of the game – watch the trailer here. From there, we brought the game into our LiveStudio program at Becker during the fall ’16 semester. Through LiveStudio, more students across a range of disciplines had roles in polishing the game and getting it ready to launch.
