GAME LAUNCH: Double, double, toil & trouble! Spell Strike hits the stores – 3/26/19
Double, double, toil & trouble! Spell Strike hits the stores
Play as a magical witch who must defend her town from destruction at the hands of evil monsters! Hone your skills and tap your way to victory! Cast your spells against the demons and monsters crawling their way out of the underworld through dangerous portals! Do you have what it takes to be the guardian of your town?
The mobile game was created during the 2018 MassDiGI Summer Innovation Program (SIP) by students Leo Bunyea from WPI, Xijie Guo from Mt. Holyoke, Chloe Tibets from Becker, Aaron Kang from Swarthmore, Tolga Sen from UMass Boston, Melody Cheng from RISD and Maxime Gautier from Berklee College of Music.
Working over the summer, the team produced a beta/near-release version of the game – watch the trailer here. From there, we brought the game into our LiveStudio program at Becker during the fall ’18 and spring ’19 semesters. Through LiveStudio, more students across a range of disciplines, including business students, had roles in polishing the game and getting it ready to launch.
