This years Games Technology students have created a pirate game called 'i-Patch Pirates' which will be available to play online, through the UWE network.
All you need to do is create your character, choose your pirate name, and select which faculty galleon you would like to board. Then you're off, to sail through the high seas of cyber-crime and debauchery, whilst competing against the other faculty galleons and pirates.
Which faculty's galleon will sail above the rest, only time will tell!Play i-Patch Pirates now

The setting is an IT Service Desk where it is your job to fix the laptops that appear to have been infected by various malware. But this is no ordinary IT Service Desk. This is VR Helpdesk. Go inside the laptop to discover the problem and use the fix-a-tron machine to make the laptops safe again using the safe USB sticks.
During the event you may have come across the board game Cluwedo, which we had dotted around the campuses.
It is a retro style board game, in which the players have to determine WHO is responsible for a cyber-attack at UWE Bristol, HOW the attack happened, and WHERE it took place. Play as Scarlet Fresher, or perhaps Vice Chancellor Brown. Learn about different types of cyber-attack whilst playing this classic format game.
