On October 2015 I started a Master’s Degree in Creation of Video Games at Barcelona School of Management – Universitat Pompeu Fabra. During the first months, along the artists of the Master, we learned everything about Game Design and Game Production. On January we created a group of 3 artists and 5 programmers and started to design our game, also the artists started learning 3D modeling, texturing, animation, UI design and art direction, by the other side, the programmers learned graphics programming, physics, artificial intelligence and audio programming. But let’s talk about the game…
Dream Hills is a sandbox video game developed by 8 students (3 artists and 5 programmers) at the Master’s Degree of Videogame Creation at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona.
Play as Timmy in this open-world sandbox fighting those bullies to recover the lost teddy bear piece. Shoot them directly with your slingshot or use the street elements at the village to set traps; craft different projectiles, from firecrackers to stink bombs; drive R/C cars; destroy things and more.
Timmy is a coward and insecure kid that moves to a new village called Dream Hills. When he arrives, he realizes the village is controlled by a crew of bullies. One of these bullies tries to take Timmy’s teddy bear, Teddy, which is the kid’s inseparable friend. During the struggle, the bully rips Teddy’s ear and runs away. Despite its fears, Timmy feels he has to do something and begins the search of the lost ear. This adventure will lead Timmy to get enough courage to face the bullies leader, a big boy that nobody dares to confront.

On October, 6th to 9th 2016, Dream Hills was present at the Barcelona Games World as part of the Barcelona School of Management – Universitat Pompeu Fabra stand, where we could test our game with young players (from 6 to 12 year old kids) and get tons of valuable data.
We created a Facebook page of Dream Hills to publish all the official information that we want to share. There you will find more videos, photos of the team, screenshots and concepts of the game. Feel free to like, share or comment the contents.
