The ASU Video Game Dev Club members’ winning game at the Phoenix Global Game Jam 2016.

Four teams from ASU’s Video Game Dev Club participated in Phoenix Global Game Jam on Jan. 29-31, 2016, taking home two awards and cash prizes, including the top award.

A team of Fulton Schools computer science students — Club President Eric Tang and members Angel Diaz and Alex Ryan — won Best Game and $500 for their game, “Dream Works,” which uses eye-tracking technology.

Club member and computer science graduate student Joseph Spiro and alumni Kevin Rogers and Louise Dy Quiangco won 2nd Runner Up for Best Game and $50.

The club is overseen by School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering Lecturer Yoshihiro Kobayashi, and includes Fulton Schools students as well as students in a variety of programs including art, digital culture and psychology.

Six winning teams at the event were chosen by 20 judges who represent influential Phoenix businesses. Phoenix-area companies GoDaddy and Axosoft in addition to Sweden-based eye-tracking technology company Tobii and others sponsored the the event, which was held at the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe.

The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is an in-person, hackathon-style game creation gathering where participants design an entire game from scratch over 48 hours.
