Tranzfuser is a national competition for graduate games talent

University of Bedfordshire graduates are among 13 nationwide teams to reach the final stages of the Tranzfuser gaming competition.

The team, called Fusebox Inc., includes three University of Bedfordshire graduates from the BSc Computer Games Development course and one post-graduate researcher from the School of Computer Science and Technology.

Participating teams will work on their individual games over the course of the summer. They will be working to produce a playable demo for a large consumer games show in the Autumn.

There they will vie for the attention of the playing public, standing alongside the AAA games of 2019.

The teams will also attend a bootcamp-style ‘Practice Pitch’ event in Dundee. Here they will practice pitching skills to a range of industry professionals in preparation for the full pitch at the Autumn consumer show. The Practice Pitch event will determine which teams go on to exhibit at the consumer games show later this year.

Teams are competing for support of up to £25,000 for the development of their project.

Dr Paul Sant, head of School Computer Science and Technology at University of Bedfordshire, said:

“It’s an excellent opportunity for Bedfordshire graduates to work on a games project and pitch to a national audience.

“Well done to the team on their proposal, and good luck for the project!”
