Game Boy

Former Sedgefield Community College student and Sedgefield resident Thomas Robson recently emerged from a field of thousands of entries to reach the finals of The BAFTA Young Games Designers awards, a competition which is designed to inspire young people to create, develop and present their new game ideas to the world. Thomas succeeded in becoming one of ten finalists in the 15 to 18 years old age group of the Game Making Award category. Thomas describes his game, entitled ‘All Alone’, as an atmospheric 2D platform game “exploring the struggles that come with mental illness through metaphors and ambiguity”. In the game, players must navigate through a dark, mysterious forest all the while taking care to avoid numerous hazards such as enemies and “pits of dark mist”.
