RGU grad achieves computer game dream


One Robert Gordon University (RGU) student has fulfilled one of his dreams by creating his own computer game.

Adam DrewAdam Drew (23), who created a turn-based role playing game based on a board game that he had made as a child, graduated from RGU on Friday, July 17 with a BSc (Hons) in Computing for Graphics and Animation.

He said that the achievement of creating the game, which is set in a fantasy world, had been a dream since he was young.

“It was one of the most stressful yet rewarding things I have ever accomplished,” Adam said. “I also managed to obtain a degree with first class honours, which is what I hoped for.

“The highlight of my time at RGU was definitely seeing my game finished. Putting a lot of work into something and having an output that I can appreciate is very satisfying.”

Adam, who balanced his studies with a part time job working in a supermarket, added: “I found the third and fourth years of university very stressful and during the last semester in particular I felt isolated from the rest of the world due to the enormous workload.”

He is now looking forward to a less stressful summer and has enrolled to start a distance learning fitness instructor and personal trainer degree, pursuing another of his passions.
