  • Student Work

During the 2015-2016 academic year, IDG student Sven Kniestedt developed a video game titled "Bard" for the purposes of the Prototyping for Game Designers course. Bard is an educational game designed to help children recognize musical notes and begin to learn the basics of musical composition. In the game, the player takes on the role of Bard, a mystical creature whose aim is to collect notes so he can play a tune on his flute-like instrument for his master, Master Chu. These notes are found within the garden which makes up the main level of the game. Once Bard finds the right notes and manages to organize them in the proper sequence, he can then play the melody requested by Master Chu.
