A north-east school pupil has been selected as a finalist in a game design competition.
Benjamin Cranston, a first year pupil at Lathallan School, has made the finals of the Bafta Young Game Designers Competition, which he originally entered last month.
Those who enter are asked to design an original computer game concept, with the winning applicant having the opportunity to meet top gaming experts who will work with them to bring their game to life.
Benjamin combined his hobbies with school work to create Surf Simulator – where players surf oceans to collect plastics which are then put into a recycling bin and made into new surfboards.
The youngster said: “I am very excited to have been nominated for my game idea and I am looking forward to the final.”
He will travel down to London with his father where the winner will be revealed in a ceremony on July 9.
