And the winners is…

Last Saturday March 15th 2014, the Fabra & Coats creative factory hosted the Augmented Reality Games Barcelona Hackathon. The event gathered six teams of developers and creative people in a 12-hour-long contest to build Augmented Reality games with the Pervasive Gaming platform enablers of the FIcontent project. The teams were asked to create a game that fitted into one or more of the following categories: AR Toy/Tabletop game, AR Installation game, AR City-wide game, or a Serious/Educational AR game.
The 22 participants who took part in the Hackathon displayed a high level of ability and enthusiasm, and worked hard all day on their applications in a relaxed atmosphere. At the end of the event, each group pitched their application in a round of public presentations. These entries were evaluated by a panel of judges on three criteria: Creativity, Originality and Innovation; Completeness and Polishment; and Usage of Enablers.Finally, the panel of judges singled out three teams as winners of the challenge:
1st prize – MiniBomb, with the game “Divine and Conquer”, an AR card game with plenty of minigames where players are priests competing for divine favours.
2nd prize – TriceRaptor, with the game “Wormhole Catcher”, an AR serious city-wide game in which the search for hidden wormholes drives the user’s discovery of the cultural heritage of a city.
3rd prize – Reality Shift, with the game “Monster Rift”, an AR fantasy game where players train creatures and battle each other for the highest score.
The winning teams received a cash prize, and won as well the chance to present their polished applications before the FI Content 2 consortium during the meeting to be held in Barcelona on the 22nd of May.
the winners!
