A horror adventure inspired by the podcast "Welcome to Night Vale" was created by UAT alumnus Johnathan Weiner of Game Design. It's a fresh, interactive game prototype that's full of thrills, chills, puzzles and exploration.
The Entertainment Expo is the largest convention for video game and electronic entertainment industries. Hundreds of companies come to the Los Angeles Convention Center to show off the their latest and greatest to the masses. I got the chance to travel to LA and see what everyone had to offer. The Convention was set up in two halls: The South and West Hall. I first went to the West Hall. The booths included: Square Enix, Sega, Nintendo and Sony Playstation. Each Booth houses new games that are in the demo phase and are scheduled to be released soon. Players gather to try a portion of the game before it's release.
Here at UAT, nearly every class requires public speaking. Whether it's a small presentation for a science class or a major final presentation for your Student Innovation Project, public speaking pretty much dominates your school experience.

When I first started college here at UAT, I brought some clothes and my work computer. As you could imagine, my dorm room felt bland and empty. So, during my second semester though, I bought (and bartered for) tons of posters, trinkets and furniture. It finally felt like home. Pick up these five items to make your dorm room feel more like your own personal space and less like a rotating room at summer camp.
Alright, this topic could get weird. For those of us who have a staple series or franchise that we love to follow, whether it be comics, manga, anime, movies or video games, we have all come across at least one fan theory or fiction. As a whole, they are simply the way another fan views a franchise or wants that franchise to go. For the most part, they are harmless and just a form of artistic expression and gratitude. However, I want to dig deeper into these theories, especially as someone who hopes to create a franchise in the future.
Making video games can feel like fun. Creating battlefield visualizations for the United States Army can save lives. University of Advancing Technology graduate Eric Fernald does both. We sat down with Eric to find out how he got his job as a game scenario designer at CGI.
