2016 Games Directory

 

We counted record number of games published as part of this year’s competition, from 40 students across 25 universities.

 

For 2016 our Search for a Star & Sumo Digital Rising Star applicants created 40 Windows 10 Universal Apps using Unity, which they published to the Windows 10 store.

 

Given just a very basic prototype and two weeks to develop and publish a game, our entrants went in a variety of directions with their games project ideas, with space shoot-’em-ups, exploration adventures, physics puzzlers and more.

 

In our 2016 games directory you can find all the games produced for the Search for a Star &  Sumo Digital Rising Star competitions, free for you to download and play on any Windows 10 device!
