GAME LAUNCH: Fire it up with Save the Flame! – 10/23/19
Fire it up with Save the Flame!
Save the Flame, a free, fun and high-flying runner, is available for download now on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Explore the world of Vishal as you play Omar, a young fire magic prodigy and last hope for humanity. In this endless runner, Omar is trying to take back The Flame from the ancient spirit Onii, while dodging possessed obstacle fragments, and collecting coins to help with his quest. Will you be able to save the flame, or will Onii plunge humanity into darkness forever?
The mobile game was created during the 2019 MassDiGI Summer Innovation Program (SIP) by students Angel Ortiz from Lesley, Savannah Gaspar from Becker, Sebastian Schindler from Becker, Emma Lowry from WPI, Toby Maclure-O’Reilly from LYIT, Griffin Beels from Brown and Ethan Reese from Berklee.
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 ’19 semester. Through LiveStudio, more students across a range of disciplines, including business students, had roles in polishing the game and getting it ready to launch.
