From The Daily Mail:
Students have transformed historic maps into a 3D video game environments.
A number of teams battled it out to win a national initiative that invited them to use maps and engravings from the British Library’s archives to craft a video game.
Pudding Lane Productions, a team of six second-year students from De Montfort University, Leicester, scooped first prize in the Off the Map challenge with their game set in 17th century London.
The competition was sponsored by game developer Crytek and run in conjunction with the British Library and GameCity.
Tom Harper, panel judge and curator of cartographic materials at the British Library, said: ‘Some of these vistas (seen in the game of the winning entry) would not look at all out of place as special effects in a Hollywood studio production.
