Staffordshire University has launched “Level of Detail” games vodcast.
Level of Detail is a brand-new YouTube series hosted by the Games Development department. Recorded in the Esports Hub, the series will be linking up with a team of over 80 specialist games lecturers and some of the nearly 1500 games students at Staffordshire University.
Throughout the series, games development experts will be playing some of the most iconic computer games on a variety of platforms and inviting in industry guests to give their insights on a wide range of topics and disciplines.
In the debut episode, viewers can join Head of Games Development Professor Chris Headleand, Games Technical Designer David ‘Deej’ James and Concept Artist Rachel Alderson as they take a meander through the metaverse, while playing Fortnite.
They tackle big questions from what exactly the metaverse is to why games like Fortnite have developed into such a global success.
Chris said: “The games community at Staffs Uni is world renowned for its talent, educational innovation, and impressive portfolio of industry collaborations. We are passionate about making games and Level of Detail is an opportunity to learn more about what we do, what it takes to get into the industry and chat about the latest trends in gaming. All while enjoying some friendly banter and playing awesome games.”
Rachel added: “The first episode was great fun to record, and we hope this comes across. We have the biggest games department in the UK and Level of Detail is a great way to share the expertise of our lecturing staff and reach out to engage with the gaming community.”
