Design and animation students develop a game celebrating diversity, equity and inclusion

Angela Konz, a graphic communication major, and her partner Rebecca Zych, an animation major, created a Halloween-themed video game called “The Great Halloween Kerfuffle” in their Interactive Media Studio class and will present their game at this year’s Student Academic Conference on Tuesday, April 5.

In the game, Arora, a kind witch, travels through the realms of different characters to save her Halloween party. She must find the fairy spirits from each level to save each of her friends from Frisk, the mischievous spirit.  

“I feel like I’ve come a long way in being able to present my ideas to people and I feel like this is a professional scenario for me to learn from,” Angela said.
