A team of 16 students under the direction of faculty produced “Depths of Madness” in a joint endeavor between SAU’s two Game and Animation Design programs from the Art and Design and the Computer Science departments. 

It was done as a Senior Game Development Project as a culmination of their game and simulation studies at SAU.
