Fourth-year RIT students Dan Plate and Gary Porter won first place in the Visual Quality category of the 2015 Intel University Games Showcase last night for their forthcoming video game, Super Daryl Deluxe. Plate, an illustration major, created the game’s visual elements while Porter, a game design and development major, wrote the code. Both students are from Waterloo, N.Y. and have been friends since middle school.

“It feels so surreal,” said Porter. “We had no idea coming into this that we would win anything, let alone first place. If you had told us a couple years ago when we started making this game that we would win an award at Game Developers Conference, we wouldn’t have believed you.”

Super Daryl Deluxe is an action role-playing game featuring unique combat system and visual style. A free demo is available on the game’s website. The game is expected to be published and released by MAGIC Spell Studios sometime next year.
