The Guildhall at Southern Methodist University has announced the upcoming debut of a student-designed game based on the 1995 Mel Gibson film Braveheart, created in cooperation with Paramount Pictures.

Students enrolled in The Guildhall, SMU's graduate video game education program, participate in a simulated design studio in the course's final semester. The assembled design teams must produce a working prototype game prior to graduation, demonstrating skills learned in art creation, level design, and programming.

One of this year's projects, Braveheart: Primae Noctis, was made possible through an educational arrangement between SMU and Paramount Pictures.

"We believe this to be the first project of its kind where a university has been able to develop a prototype game for educational purposes based on a major motion picture," said Dr. Peter Raad, executive director of The Guildhall at SMU. "The opportunity for our students to work on a globally-recognized concept like Braveheart is extraordinary by any measure."

A public viewing and testing of Braveheart: Primae Noctis will take place at the program's public exhibition, to be held on December 18th, from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM, at Southern Methodist University in Plano, Texas.
