The student-made videogame Piecefall, developed for PlayStation®4, was released in the United States on 31 March 2016, and has featured in the gaming and education media.

Following the original European release of PieceFall in July 2015, Sheffield Hallam University received the national TIGA Games Industry Award for “Best Educational Institution”. Now, the widespread industry support for the game has led to its transatlantic release on the American PlayStation Network Store on 31 March.
