Competition success
show user profile  mike_renouf
I just have to shout about this. There's a mate of mine who I've known since high school who has just come runner up in an Edge online competition. In the last year he's taught himself to code in Unity, model in Blender and do god-knows what else in order to create his first game, completely single handed and without any formal tuition.



I've seen "Nautical Protest" in development throughout the last few months but was blown away when I saw the finished thing.

You can read about Mike Chambers' game here: http://www.edge-online.com/news/sailing-and-running-feature-as-we-reveal-the-runners-up-of-get-into-games-challenge-2014/

If you're interested in getting in touch with this guy for recruitment purposes or to hear more about his game please let me know and I'll happily connect you up! I'm hoping he'll have a website of his own to promote his skills very soon.

Looks cool.

I was put of by the link shortener and then a malicious file warning from chrome. Why no proper website?

I agree - they've not really done a great job of providing access to the files. I just tried it and it took me to a dropbox download page :(

Dropbox is a bit cheap and nasty for a pro site to be resorting to on something like this!

Still, if you want to take the plunge then I'm sure you'll be impressed by the game. Now that Mike has won his full pro license for unity I expect that an improved recompiled version will be coming soon!
