Placement student releases mobile game

BA computer Games Technology student, Pierre McDougall has released a mobile game which he created during a Self Employed Placement Year.

Pierre always wanted to set up his own independent games company and his aim during his placement was focused around improving a range of hard and soft skills, rather than earning money, as it would take longer than a year to obtain a useful amount of revenue in this field.

To gain useful and relevant skills during the year, Pierre’s business idea was to create a game for mobile platforms using a simple concept that he considered before creating his business proposal.

During the year Pierre set-up the business PierreWare Games, designed, developed and published AstroBumpers for iOS and Android.

In addition to this, Pierre learnt an incredible amount which will help him greatly during his final year and after graduation.

Pierre said “Just being motivated gets you a long way”
