Adobe Game Winners
November 9, 2009 —
Adobe's Design Achievement Awards are recognized as one of the world's most prestigious student design competitions and a team of Digital Media students just won first prize in this year's Non-Browser-Based Design category for their project Fourmation. The Fourmation team was comprised of just-graduated students Jared Weinstock, Nick Deimler, Chau Nguyen, Tom Bergamini, Todd Carpenter and Kyle McArdle who were competing against 3300 students entries from 37 different countries.
The awards ceremony took place at the 2009 Icograda World Design Congress in Beijing, China, and Jared Weinstock and Kyle McArdle were on hand to accept the award. Team Fourmation won $3000, software packages and travel expenses for their trip to China.
Fourmation is a 3D action-packed multiplayer Flash game that uses Wii technology to bring virtual reality to the home computer. If you're interested in testing your skills, download the game here. Congratulations to Jared, Nick, Chau, Todd, Kyle and Tom, and their faculty advisor Jervis Thompson.
