The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has announced the finalists of this year’s Young Game Designer competition: http://ygd.bafta.org/winners-nominees/2018

Three students taught by Corona developer Ian Masters entered their Corona-made apps and all three were selected as Top-10 finalists in the 10-14 year old “Game Making” category. There were around 3,500 submissions. A fourth student was selected as a Top-10 finalist in the 10-14 “Game Concept” category.

Ian Masters, an indie developer and the creator of QuizTix (an acclaimed series of quiz games made in Corona), teaches these students part-time using Corona. Masters said “Lua is such a great learning language for kids, and thanks to powerful development tools like Corona they can use it to make releasable cross-platform games”.
