Duncan Bell, designer at OgilvyOne, was recently selected to showcase a game he created from scratch, called “Blazin’ Aces”, at rAge 2013, an exhibition dedicated to video games and technology.


The expo is organised and run by New Age Gaming (NAG), a local video game magazine, and exhibitors worldwide are invited to showcase their work, including video games, computer hardware, gaming peripherals and more.

Bell says Blazin’ Aces is a 2D aerial dog-fighting game, where players need to destroy their enemies, or be destroyed themselves. “Players acquire points for damaging their enemies and need to reach a certain score to win. The game features frantic, but fun aerial combat. It is easy to pick and 澳门足球博彩_2016奥运会外围赌球最新官方网站【赔率最高】 play, but hard to master. The various game modes included in the final version test the players’ skill and other interested people a crash course on game design and development. “So far, I have conducted two highly successful classes and will host another one at the beginning of next year,” he says.


“Working in an always-on and digitally sussed environment like OgilvyOne is the perfect place for someone like me, where my passion for technology and

development is at the heart of speaking to people in new and interesting ways,” says Bell.
