Amphipolis Tomb Inspires Greek Computer Games

amf708_1The Amphipolis tomb was the theme of the gi-Cluster Game Jam 2014, a three-day event where computer programmers competed on creating a game about the burial monument.
The gi-Cluster Game Jam 2014 that took place December 12-14 at the gi-Cluster space in the northern Athens suburb Marousi was the third Hellenic Game Jam. Seventy computer programmers, graphic designers and sound engineers worked in groups to create a game about the Amphipolis tomb. The participating teams had about 50 hours to complete the project.
The purpose of the particular gi-Cluster project is to combine new technologies and creativity in order to promote Greek civilization and tourism in Greece. Contestants were judged on innovation, content quality, sound, graphics, and gameplay. “The Pixelators” were the winners of the competition and received the prize of 3,000 euros. “Macabre Entertainment” came second, winning 2,000 euros and “Synelixis” was third and received 1,000 euros.
All three winning teams can enter the gi-Cluster business acceleration program for support in their future endeavors.
