  Game On! Test Drive New Video Games Thursday


12/09/2008
Game On! Test Drive New Video Games Thursday









Free and open to the public from 9 to 5 Thursday in the atrium of UNM's Electrical & Computer Engineering Department, the second annual Video Game Competition is being presented by students in the Introduction to Computer Graphics class.

During this daylong extravaganza, the students will show off and let you test play video games that they produced in just one month as their senior project in the class, ECE/CS 412.

We believe that you will be impressed with the results.

Several games are competing, and your feedback is invited before the judges choose the "best of" games. What better feedback can the students receive than your real-life impressions?

You'll play the games on your choice of four or five HDTVs with the games playing from both XBOX360s and PCs.

If you are interested in game development or in playing video games or you just need a quick break from studies for finals week come and see what our students were able to achieve in only one month. Drop by at any time and check it out!

Where: ECE Building atrium (#46 on UNM campus map) When: Dec. 11, 2008, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The judging session from 5 to 6:30 p.m. is also open to the public: the student teams will describe how they developed their games, and prizes will be awarded.

Directions to the ECE building can be found here. This event is sponsored by ECE's Advanced Graphics Lab.

Last year a few hundred people came by and the event was covered in the nightly news. Check out the broadcast here.

-- Also, a videotaped report was produced by UNM for YouTube and can be seen on UNM's site here and on YouTube:

-- To hear a 40-minute podcast interview that UNM conducted with ECE Professor Pradeep Sen last year, go here. In the interview, Dr. Sen talks about what digital media and computer graphics are, the collaboration on digital media between engineers and artists at UNM, and job prospects for graduates.

For more information, contact Professor Pradeep Sen at psen@ece.unm.edu.
