Inspector Gadget and the Swine Flue

Friday 21st of August, the new computer science and informatics students gathered for the annual computer game competition which marked the end of their two week Teknostart and Realstart events.

The students have been working in groups, making computer games and learning about group dynamics. The teaching assistants nominated ten of the games for a final demonstration, and a student vote.

Inspector Gadget and the Swine Flue won the student's vote. It was created by the following informatics students: Tri Minh Nguyen, Håkon Gulbrandsen, Jørn Hegstad Tallaksen, Johan Jansen and Håkon Rønning. The Rope Fighter III and Crabbie games came in 2nd and 3rd place and were created by computer science students. The award ceremony will be held in November, and the award is sponsored by IBM.
