Source Academy

for School of Computing NUS

The Source Academy is a prestigious inter-galactic educational institute nestled deep within the Kepler-62 system. Here, students learn to harness the invisible power of the Source, a hidden energy that allows one to manipulate their surroundings.

We created an immersive virtual world with elements parallel to the students' life in the university. Students play as Cadets in the Source Academy headed by two GrandMasters (their professors) and use the Source (writing code) to crack top-secret transmissions, save cute furry aliens from extinction and face down deadly enemies for the good of the galaxy.
