Shirley-Anne Somerville MSP, Scottish Government Minister for Further Education, Higher Education and Science officially opened the Dare to be Digital ProtoPlay event, organised by Abertay University, at the Caird Hall in Dundee. ProtoPlay is UK's biggest Indie games festival and showcases the games produced by the 16 UK and International student teams on Abertay University’s Dare to be Digital programme as well as featuring other indie games from local, national and international developers alongside a varied educational programme for the public. This year’s event is particularly significant for Abertay University, as well as the wider Scottish video games industry as it coincides with a visit to Dundee by a senior delegation from Perfect World, a Chinese video games company which is amongst the largest in the world.
