A game designed by a team of OCAD U Digital Futures students has made it to the finals at the 2016 Independent Games Festival in San Francisco. Pitfall Planet is a puzzle-solving game where players help two robot astronauts return to their home planet.

The OCAD U team comprises Emma Burkeitt, David Czarnowski and Guy Torsher. They’re working with U of T alum Alexander Biggs, Daphne Ippolito and Adam Robinson-Yu.

Pitfall Planet is one of five games vying for the $3000 prize for Best Student Game, which will be awarded during the festival in March. It was named Best Overall Game at last year’s Level Up showcase.

The game’s still in development, but the team plans to release it soon on Steam and possibly consoles.
