Virtual Play made artwork for an educational game, which is part of a European project (IMPRESS) to help students learn software engineering through gamification. In this tower defense game students learn programming in a playful way. The retro-style and colours add a coding language feel to the game, while the towers are artistic impressions of parts of the motherboard of a computer.
