SCAD Students Sweep SXSW Screenburn Game Competition

March 16, 2009

It was not the luck of the Irish but solid designs that allowed my design students Seth Smith and Gwen Murray (whose last name may come from the ancient Irish name O’Muireadhaigh) to win both of the SXSW game design competitions during Screenburn. Seth won with Project ZEUS in the AAA category and Gwen Murray won with Sloppy Ice in the Casual category. In total, SCAD students locked up 25% of the semi-finalist spots, 33% of the finalist spots and 100% of the awards.

Congrats, Gwen and Seth! (Congrats to me for figuring out a way to hustle this news in without breaking my all-Irish streak.)
