MEDIC!

Now that its officially been presented to the press, I can actually mention a little side project I’ve been helping out with…

Tim Holt (a.k.a “Waldo”) and myself has had a long standing interest in using game engines for more than just entertainment. Tim’s involvement with Serious Games has led to some interesting discussions and as a result, he resently got a chance to put together a demo showing how the Source engine could be used for education.

On behalf of Texas A&M Corpus Christi, Tim developed a demo using the Source engine recreating a scene inside a virtual Army Surgical Work Area tent where the “player” has to diagnose and treat a wounded soldier.

My role was fairly minor, mostly a bit of brainstorming/idea swapping with Tim and putting together some character models for the demo.
