I’m not only a programmer here at KJ working on our RPG and shop manager game Eco Tales: My Item Shop but I’m also a teacher at LBS Stockholm where game development and game graphics are two of our most popular programs to study. There are 14 LBS schools around Sweden and every year LBS Jönköping hosts LBS Game Awards.
Me and some of my students traveled there to support the two projects from our school that took part in this event with there projects.
The event itself was held in this old brick warehouse prior to destruction looking building suitable for rave parties and game awards, an improvement from last year where we where in a corridor, the only negative thing I can see this year is the fact that I like toilets, I dislike porta potties and lets just leave it at that.
It was filled with eager students all showing off there games that judged by some awesome jurors from the industry, King was there representing and held two really nice lectures.
Like I said we were there with two projects, one first year project from GotoStart Studio showing of their game Owen’s Adventure.
It makes me really proud what my students have accomplished, well beyond the scope of what was reasonable to accomplish, something they jury agreed upon because we took home a lot of prices.
Owen’s Adventure came in second for best 3d graphics and best technical solution and first price for best newcomer of the year.
Our second year students, the crowd pleasing project Turf Wars took home second place in best game, first place in best 3d graphics and most importantly peoples choice.
So needless to say, as a teacher I was overwhelmed, not surprised ;p and I consider myself to be the real winner and expect at least 10% of any future income from them.
