    iacademyFollowing in the footsteps of their mentors, two groups of iACADEMY students have entered into the FINAL round of Microsoft Philippines’s 12th Imagine Cup competition.

    Imagine Cup is a globally recognized, world class technology competition designed for student participants. The competition provides students with a venue, an opportunity and a platform to freely express their ideas and manifest their ability and knowledge by harnessing new-world technology through the creation of applications, games and solutions that address real-world issues.

    Passing their torch to the next generation, Ms. KC Arabit and Mr. Alvin Uy, iACADEMY alumni, part-time faculty members and Imagine Cup veterans, lent their expertise and experience to the current batch of iACADEMY students.

    Ms. Arabit’s team, Full Sails, unveiled Furbs, a game where players solve world issues through various mini-games while counting on the support of a collection of fluffy creatures which the game was named after. Team members include: Charles Frederic Atienza (Game Development Student), Jose Paolo Padilla (Software Engineering Student), Brendo Toledo (Software Engineering Student), Renee Jason Jover (Software Engineering Student).

    Not to be out-classed, Mr. Uy’s, Team Lemniscate coined the game Subject of Change, a 3D simulator similar to the popular game Sim City, where players are empowered to build and manage a city of thier very own. Team members include: Carl Michael Zamora (Game Development Student), Lawrence Victor Zarasate (Game Development Student), Chrysia Wayan (Game Development Student), Elaine Monica Luna (Game Development Student).
