Presidential Escape

Title: Presidential Escape
Group: Daniel Ballem, Daniel Bassani, Michael Bassani
Course: CISC 226

Description: Presidential Escape is a horde based, first-person adventure game that puts the player’s situational awareness, quick thinking, and sharp eye to the test. Leave no stone unturned in this comical world where you take the role of the infamous Peter Resident; the current President of the United States, who has been separated from the Secret Service in a foreign country with absolutely no help in sight.  All hope seems lost until you get in contact with your #1 agent, who is DEAD SET on getting you back by any means necessary.

Peter Resident must navigate through the country’s capital, dangerous roads, and escape through the dense forest. Andrew “COMM” Williams will be your deciding factor whether you make it back safely supplying you with necessary duties over the only form of communication you have left; your earpiece. Things are looking up for the president, but if only it was that easy….

Peter Resident’s resounding worldwide success has left himself vulnerable to the love of his adoring fans. This is where the core idea of Presidential Escape takes shape. As the President embarks on his mission, he will be met by his crazed fans. Once spotted by any of them, they will relentlessly chase after him. with absolutely no means to get rid of them. With this, the horde will only ever get larger – increasing the amount of stress in this un-presidented time.

Each level has one main objective you must complete in order to progress, but each one requires you to do some extra dirty work. Peter must use his sharp eye to locate objects scattered throughout the map, searching through every corner. If the president ever gets stuck he can throw autographs in order to distract the crowd, giving the prez a few seconds of breathing room. After Peter succeeds in his objectives, he must transition to a new location, driving through dangerous, fan infested roads while swerving and avoiding anyone blocking his way.

Welcome to the Creative Computing Showcase: Quarantine Edition

Every year the School of Computing holds an end of year event called the Creative Computing Showcase, highlighting undergraduate work that took place that year. This year’s event was scheduled to take place on April 3rd. But, because of the rapidly evolving global pandemic, we were forced to cancel it… or were we?

While we are not physically present at the School, staff and faculty have been working hard at keeping the classes proceeding, and the research active while distancing/self-isolating. So we started to think of how we could still hold Creative Computing, while keeping everyone safe. With that in mind…

We introduce the first EVER online Creative Computing Showcase – or Creative Computing: Quarantine Edition.

For more information, and to submit your project, go to the Creative Computing Submission Form.

We hope you’ll consider submiting your projects. This is a good way for us all to reconnect with each other during these isolating circumstances. We look forward to seeing what everyone has been working on this year!

If you have any questions or difficulties, please contact Doug Martin.
