Welcome to Big Red Adventure—a creation of the Sacred Heart University gaming program. The student creators of this program are all graduate or undergraduate majors in the University’s computer science and information technology program.

This is a collection game with three ways to score points: capture Greensters (alien observers from planet Tronedeau); explore campus buildings and collide with objects hidden throughout each building; play any or all of three mini-games found in various Sacred Heart parking lots.

While accumulating a high score is one way to win the game, another “win” is the ability to explore Sacred Heart’s campus. This is not a virtual tour. It is not any form of gamification. Rather, we believe it is the first game ever created with a primary goal of helping potential students have fun while becoming acquainted with our University.
