Design Mind: Madison Student Wins for Video Game Epilogue Idea
Jordan Buehler’s video game outline has been selected by Game Career Guide magazine as one of the best original entries in their existing game epilogue competition. Buehler is a Game Development student at Herzing University – Madison. Game Career Guide challenged its readers and the best entries to the competition were announced February 7, 2012.
“The experience has validated my desire to be part of the games industry,” said Buehler, 22, of Madison.
“From day one I have felt comfortable expressing myself and my ideas here at Herzing. The atmosphere has always felt open and relaxed. This allows for people, in my opinion, to be bold, take risks, and try and come up something new and different.”
In addition to his student status, Buehler works as a Library Student Assistant at the Madison West Learning Center, an extension of Herzing University. “Working at the school has been a wonderful opportunity for me,” Buehler said. “They have been very accommodating for my extracurricular activities. I participate as secretary for our Student Senate and I am also the president of the Madtown-IGDA Student Chapter. (International Game Developers Association). Both keep me very busy but I enjoy the challenge and it is very rewarding to see fellow students grow and watch as our gaming community prospers.”
