Abertay students working on FuturLab prototypes
"Having an opportunity to effectively triple our workforce to create prototypes for a year without risk is fantastic"
UK developer Futurlab is making the most of the talent on offer at Abertay University, taking on 20 students from its Production, Programming, Art & Design to work on prototyping projects in partnership with the company.
"As a small team of ten working hard on Velocity 2X - our most ambitious title yet - it's been quite a challenge to remain focused on what's coming next, so having an opportunity to effectively triple our workforce to create prototypes for a year without risk is fantastic," said Futurlab MD James Marsden.
"It's also a great opportunity for the students as they're able to benefit from mentorship and regular feedback to hit the high standards that we set for ourselves."
The finished prototypes will remain the property of Futurlab. One is a spin-off of the company's popular Velocity series for PlayStation, and both will be presented by the students later this year.
"Our students benefit enormously from the experience of working with the professionals from FuturLab. We are very grateful for the care they have taken to provide genuine mentorship to our students," added Abertay's Professor Louis Natanson.
