Governor Cuomo Announces Second Round Winners of NYS Game DEV Challenge!

Congratulations to Francys Dong (a second-year games and simulation arts and sciences major from China) and Hongyang Lin (a second-year games and simulation arts and sciences major from China) and everyone on Team Tunacat for their game Mastery! This student team from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute took third place!

For those who don’t know, the challenge invited students enrolled in New York State colleges and universities, and independent developers residing within the state, to bring innovative ideas to production by applying to win awards to support the development of digital games. Applicants were judged on their game idea pitch, prototype, business and mentorship plans, and development timeline.
