About Us

At Abertay University there is a back-catalogue (growing all of the time) of highly innovative student game projects from the world-famous Dare to be Digital competition, and the university's unique Computer Games Development courses. The Code Bar has been designed to make these projects available for both educational evaluation and exclusive commercial acquistion.

Utilising a unique approach where the full project files for these projects are available immediately via one-click access for evaluation-only purposes, The Code Bar is aiming to become an educational and R&D portal for gaming. It will also be providing a showcase of the talented students and projects that are coming out of Abertay University.

Educational – All of the projects and associated files (code, assets and documentation) on The Code Bar are completely free to download for evaluation purposes. Play around with these projects to help you understand how the inner workings of a computer game is developed and to help your learning for your own personal projects.

Commercial – A major reason for The Code Bar being established is to provide games developers of any type and any location immediate access to a bank of innovative game ideas that they can firstly analyse and then potentially secure the commercial rights to bring these games to market.

Interested? Then head on over to the The Code Bar Game Projects Page to see the latest projects that are available for download.
