Among heavyweight titles such as Fable Legends and Batman Arkham Knight, a video game created at the University of Lincoln is one of the most anticipated for 2015.

Hashtag Dungeon is an adventure game that uses Twitter to source its code, allowing social media enthusiasts to create their own worlds.

Developed by Sean Oxspring and Kieran Hicks, as a project for their Games Computing undergraduate degree at the University, the game has been compared to Nintendo’s original Zelda.

It has been listed on Kotaku’s 51 British Games To Look Out For in 2015 list, and is available on Steam, along with over 4,000 over computer games.

You can find out more about the game on its website, and our News Editor Sebastian Edgington-Cole caught up Kieran, who is now a postgraduate student at the University. He believes it’s quite a unique game, so click listen to hear his story.
