16-year old Roan Contreras scored a hat-trick by winning 3 awards – the Innovation Award, Best PC/Mac Game and the coveted Best Indie Awards. Anino games scored a brace by winning the Best Browser-based Game and the Cultural Award. Crazy Kite by Zeenoh Games won in the Best Mobile/Handheld Game category. For the Best Student Project award – the public voting went in favor to eventual People’s Choice award winner Hala! by Typhoon Games but the Best Student Project Award for PGDF 2011 went to the addicting (It reminds me of the oldskool Typing Tutor games) Gates of Heaven by TAM-OWL. The victory was all the more sweeter for the TAM-OWL team because the group members were also part of GUILD (the professional student organization of the Game Development and Design Program of DLS-CSB) who were handling the logistics of organizing the Philippine Game Development Festival 2011. Special mention must be given to Charles Que and his team – he had them most number of nominations but wasn’t able to bag an award. But aren’t all nominees already winners in their own right just for being the pioneer nominees for these awards? To the nominees, winners and organizers – Congratulations! See you all at the Philippine Game Development Festival 2012
“This morning, DLS-CSB released an announcement on suspension of classes following the CHED regulation, which was sent to the College at 7:30 am. At 11:30 am, administrators of the College met with DOH officials and were informed of the one confirmed case, which prompted the amendment of the previous announcement.”
This year, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) is proud to announce its new program. This program responds to industry needs and is a product of extensive preparation by experienced administrators and faculty of DLS-CSB’s School of Management and Information Technology and School of Design and Arts in consultation with the game development industry!
