BINUS-Deakin GAT Short Course Program: 2-week Traditional Games Experience and Game Creation

Continuing the collaboration between BINUS and Deakin University, Australia on the successful short courses, Deakin has sent 10 of their students to BINUS University. Unlike the previous 2 short courses, the program focuses specifically on Game Application Technology students, on the subject of Recreating Indonesia’s Traditional Games into Digital Computerized Versions.

In this 2-week long program, 10 Australian students, along with 4 Indonesian students (including 1 student from Soegijapranata University, Semarang) went through fun, rigorous and engaging activities in academic, Bahasa Indonesia and visits to several Game Companies as well as a memorable visit to Hong Community, a community dedicated to preserve Indonesia’s traditional games and toys in Bandung.

In this short program, the students are expected to create a game using Indonesia’s traditional games as base. Along with their Indonesian teammates, they created several games, incuding the best game inspired by “Gasing”, a traditional Sundanese game.
