Student Develops New Robin Hood Game To Bolster Sherwood Forest Bid

A postgraduate student has created a new computer game designed to support Nottinghamshire's bid to regenerate Sherwood Forest into a world-class tourist destination. Adam Duncan designed the game, Outlaws of Sherwood, as part of his MSc Multimedia Games Engineering course at Nottingham Trent University.

Outlaws of Sherwood will be officially launched by a Robin Hood-lookalike and Heritage Ranger Ade Andrews on Thursday, October 25 in Nottingham's Market Square. The event is being staged and hosted by Nottingham's GameCity festival, a week-long celebration of the modern culture of videogames. Nottingham Trent University is the lead partner for the festival, which features an extraordinary array of gaming events and aims to explore videogames in new and exciting ways.

I think it's great that certain people make games like this for that kind of stuff. I'm also making little games myself using a free and easy to use program. If I wanted I could make a Robin Hood game.

yeah, i love little games like this and am glad people like David Jaffe are making games like Cars -- a good, fun downloadable or flash game is fantastic.
