4 teams from UCF’s FIEA video game school to showcase games

Students at the University of Central Florida’s video game school will show off the titles they have been building this semester early next month.

The quartet of projects will include a virtual reality video game, a puzzle-solving platformer, a treasure quest game and a movie created using the Unreal Engine.

The groups at the Startup Showcase will exhibit their games at noon on Dec. 11 at the Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy, 500 W. Livingston St.
