Vicious Cycle Software is bringing its multiplatform Vicious Engine to Wake Technical Community College (Wake Tech), where students at the North Carolina-based community college who are participating in its extensive game development program will have access to the level of tools that professional developers use on a day-to-day basis.

“Because Wake Tech is ‘College for the Real World,’ bringing actual game development tools to our students is a priority for our curriculum,” said Walter Rotenberry, lead instructor for Wake Tech’s simulation and game development program. “Vicious Cycle has created an accessible and powerful game engine that professionals in the industry use, and it will be a significant learning tool for our students.”

“We know from our own endeavors that hands-on experience is one of the most effective teachers out there,” said Eric Peterson, president and CEO of Vicious Cycle Software, Inc. “Thanks to the availability of middleware tools like Vicious Engine, game development teachers can begin to fully realize their programs and their students can improve their portfolios in preparation for future jobs.”
