Undergraduate developer triggers gaming wars with innovative final project 150 150 Simon Hollingworth

Every year at MSM Software Solved we enrol an exceptional IT student onto our undergraduate development scheme. And we love to keep in touch with what they’re up to once they leave us.

Some continue to work for us remotely and some return to a permanent position (we are a lovely bunch after all). We’re delighted that the class of 2015 Luke Stoward, not only continues to work for us developing our website but he’s recently launched his final year development project: TriggerWars.

What is TriggerWars?

If you want to play a video game but don’t have anyone to play with, Luke’s solution aims to provide a new social platform for gamers of all ages and skills to connect and play. TriggerWars allows users to search to play with other gamers on any platform across the world, simplifying the process of finding likeminded players. The planned development includes customisation, points, ratings and feedback so players have the control to continuously optimise their experience to stay ahead of the game.

Design and development of a student project

Since gaming is all about communities, Luke is getting the gamers involved in the development of his innovative idea through crowdfunding. We know that designing and developing a new system can be expensive especially on a student budget! A number of Software Solvers have already pledged support for TriggerWars and we’re excited to see the final project go live.
