  • Methodist Girls’ School Wins Singapore Games Creation Competition 2013

    In a bid to provide families with more options for quality time together, Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) partnered StarHub and Council for Third Age(C3A), an agency to promote active ageing in Singapore,to introduce the first intergenerational theme for the Singapore Games Creation Competition (SGCC) since its inception. Themed “Games for Seniors and Juniors”, this year’s SGCC saw 500 students from 43 secondary schools developing  games that teens and their grandparents can enjoy together.

    SGCC is an annual event organised by NYP’s School of Interactive & Digital Media (SIDM) and supported by the Media Development Authority (MDA) and Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA). It provides secondary school students with a platform to learn about digital media development and games creation. The objective of SGCC is to give participants new insights into the digital media industry and encourage aspiring game developers to showcase their game creations. SGCC 2013 drew 98 entries from 500 students spanning across 43 schools. Participating students attended workshops organised by NYP to prepare them for the submission of a web-based game. The top 25 teams then proceeded to the finals, and went through an intensive four days of workshops where they transformed their single-level games into full-fledged web-based games.

    “Sam Francisco”, a group of four Secondary Three girls from Methodist Girls’ School, were crowned champions at the Singapore Games Creation Competition (SGCC) 2013, at a presentation ceremony held at Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) on 28 October.

     It was fitting that Sam Francisco’s modern take on a classic fairy tale won this year’s competition. They impressed judges with “RED”, which is inspired by “Little Red Riding Hood”. The game challenged users to work together to overcome multiple challenges such as navigating through a maze, falling through a tunnel and finding hidden objects. 

    This was the first time Methodist Girls’ School participated in this competition. We would like to congratulate them while thanking everyone who participated!

    Well Done to SIDM also for a great competition.
