Student of the Month – December 2020!
Meet Matthew S. – newly turned Pioneer, great brother, faithful Open Lab attendee, coder, sprite maker, track racer, game designer, creative learner, and now Game-U’s Student of the Month for December 2020!
Back in the studio, instructor Cat testifies, Matthew was always present at every Open Lab session, making games in Mega Maker, animating in Piskel, constructing and testing complex race tracks in Trackmania (and having fun testing them with his classmates!), or even working ahead on his class project of the week. Making the shift to online classes hasn’t dampened his enthusiasm one bit – he’s still busy, creating (absolutely independently, in his free time!) his own game in Construct 2, adding extra levels and custom animated sprites to his in-class game projects, and consistently going above and beyond the call of duty in every way!
He [Matthew] is very good at taking something he knows and creatively applying it to other things. […] I’m always very impressed by his ideas and the detail and effort he puts into his projects!Instructor Cat N.
Matthew’s a great game designer – but he’s also an awesome brother. He’s always showing his sister what he’s doing in class, and asking her to help him test it. Recently, he added a second player into his Scary Story game entirely on his own – all so his sister could play the game with him!
Congratulations, Matthew! For your kindness, attention to detail, dedication, determination, diligence, effort, and enthusiasm, you’re Game-U’s Student of the Month for December 2020! You deserve this one, Matthew! Keep reaching higher into the new year.
