Media Design School Plagiarises Speilberg
There is a ad on TV in New Zealand for the Media Design School of New Zealand.
Its shows a an alien, breaking a wall, then stepping into darkness, then stones appear for him to walk on.
I cannot believe for the life of me, that they didn't do any research into this clear cut form of plagiarism.
The video game called "The Neverhood" was created by Speilberg for dreamworks in 1996 and involved a claymation character trying to make his way through a scary universal it was ahead of its time, and took thinking and brains and wasn't the usual shoot them up type game.
One would hope that the school spots this error and withdraws the ad.
