At their launch event on 16 September, Ahtasham, Demereece, and Aaliyah will share a prototype of their new game in development ‘Dawn to the Light’.
‘Dawn to the Light’ is a video game that aims to spread awareness and help those with developing mental health issues by demonstrating how the player can destress in a school environment. This game is made by young people for young people and first launched as part of The Agency.
At this launch event Ahtasham, Demereece, and Aaliyah will share a prototype of their new game in development ‘Dawn to the Light’.
A uniquely designed and constructed arcade box, which reflects how the game will be available, will house a demo of ‘Dawn to the Light’ and some gameplay as an example of what to expect from the game.
The ‘Dawn to the Light’ team will speak about the process so far, the achievements that they have made, and what their plans are for the future. There will also be time to network, socialise and play the game.
How to Attend
This launch event is invite only.
