GAME LAUNCH Takeover Trail: The world is yours – 11/15/16
Takeover Trail: The world is yours
By Timothy Loew, executive director, MassDiGI
Takeover Trail, a free, fun, strategy game about world domination, is available for download now on the Apple App Store and Google Play. The mobile game was created during the 2016 MassDiGI Summer Innovation Program (SIP) by students Sarah Spiers from Emerson College, Ian Clinkenbeard and Erica Lyons from Becker, Prisyafandiafif Charifa from NYU, Conor Canavan from LYIT (Ireland), Elizabeth Lanahan from RISD and Joe Marchuk 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 ’16 semester. Through LiveStudio, more students across a range of disciplines had roles in polishing the game and getting it ready to launch.
