Every year from 2007 to 2014, the program has given us the opportunity to have talented and motivated students working with us.
We are particularly enthusiastic to participate this year as we are broadening our scope to include RPG games for the very first time, which brings with it a whole new group of potentially interested developers, students and users, and the opportunity to relive a new genre of classic games.
What we hope to gain is valuable code contributions, and new developers for the project. In previous years, we've had students take up and complete tasks which were on our Ideas page, including for example full new engines ports. But also, some students have come up with new functionality, proposing and finally implementing it. These have been our favorites.
