Tribeca Flashpoint Student Team Wins U.S Imagine Cup Game Design Competition!

I am so proud and thrilled to share that a team of students at Tribeca Flashpoint won first place in Game Design at the 2011 U.S. Imagine Cup competition!

Team Bloom used XNA to design Spero, a game that focuses on making a difference one step at a time by having players help find alternative energy solutions, keep the environment clean and educate people on how to live healthier lives.

These are the talented students, mentored by the extremely talented professor Darryl Hughes, who won the competition: Andrew Zurek, Nathan Moore, David Grund and Nathan Heyl. Great work guys!!! It was a privilege having them in class during their first year at Tribeca Flashpoint, and at that time I expected greatness from each of them.

Gentlemen, this is just the beginning!
