Computer Game Launch by Students of AIE

Two computer games created by Australia's leading games students will be launched today Friday, 19 November, at the Academy of Interactive Entertainment, Canberra. Roach Rage is a 3D kart-style racing game where the player is in control of one of nine crazy bugs racing around tracks set in real-world environments. Crescent Moon is a 3D tactical turn-based strategy game which pits the Cerulean water race against the Phoenix fire race.
