    I'm applying to Universities, and a common request for Game Development courses is that candidates have a portfolio of work ready to show them in an interview or to send them with the UCAS application.

    I'm somebody who spends a lot of time on small projects, rather than on one big project however, I want to make something impressive to send in but I'm low on ideas. Does anybody have any ideas for projects I could undertake?

    I often see modest but complete games created using tools such as Scratch, Game Maker, Multimedia Fusion, App Inventor, Construct2, etc. Some of the better students might showcase a tech demo, such as an in-depth implementation and visualization of a path-finding algorithm or a collision detection system. I also see contributions to mods that may have been managed online by a mod development community. Even small re-skins can present opportunities to demonstrate your knowledge of markup and scripting.
