Originally created as a capstone project by Sam Trapp of Honeoye Falls, N.Y., Ben Snyder of Memphis, N.Y., and Arun Abraham of India, the game Amirelia is now on its way to being submitted to the Independent Game Festival Student Showcase. The recently graduated master’s students from game design and development spent the summer polishing the game, which has no instructions and challenges two players to move their characters and understand the game together and create a closer friendship.

“In addition to getting a lot of play testing done, we learned about how to do the business and legal side of things,” said Trapp. “While our core competency is game design, it’s important for us to know about marketing and the intellectual property of our game.”
