Fight robots, save the world in Hyper Thunder Run 198X
Hyper Thunder Run 198x, a free, fun, endless runner where only the most radical hero can win, is available for download now on the Apple App Store and Google Play. The mobile game was created during the 2017 MassDiGI Summer Innovation Program (SIP) by students Natasha Kononenko from WPI, Joey Pagano from Pratt Institute, Josh LaFrance from Becker, Ryan Higgins from Swarthmore, Yijia Chen from RPI and NYU, Amanda Stockman from Becker and Lisa Jeong from Berklee College of Music.
Working over the summer, the team produced a beta/near-release version of the and from there, we brought the game into our LiveStudio program at Becker during the fall ’17 and spring ’18 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.
