The Sunday Times dated February 26th 2012 featured an interesting article about creativity in the technology centrefold, and part of the article included  an interview with myself and nine other participants in the GameDev Challenge.  We were asked several questions about the GameDev Challenge such as; why we chose to participate? what makes a good game? what makes a good team? and others which you can follow in the link below:

I would like to thank St. Martins Institute of IT and especially Neville Attard along with all the members of my team; Anthony Demanuele, Robert Vella, Clive Ciappara and Duncan Mercieca for such a great experience.

The results from the SMIIT GameDev Challenge are out. After showing our game to the public, the judges cast their votes, and our game, Battles on the Horizon placed 2nd.

All the teams and their games which participated in the GameDev challenge can be viewed at the Gamedev Website. I am happy to say it was a great experience, even tough I am slightly disappointed we didn’t manage to snap 1st. The work on Battles on the Horizon will not stop here, we intend to launch our game on the XBOX Live market place, and we will be showcasing our game at the open day of the Malta Maritime Museum.
