02/04/2008

GameJam, a 38-hour game development marathon held at WPI, was the subject of a recent live interview on radio station WTAG in Worcester, Mass. Students participating in the event, which was sponsored by the WPI Game Development Club, had the option of entering the games they created in the Massachusetts Game Challenge, a competition established 38 Studios, a video game development company founded by Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling. Schilling, himself, made a surprise appearance half-way through the event. Many of the WPI students taking part in GameJam are enrolled in the university's pioneering, first-in-the-nation Interactive Media & Game Development (IMGD) major.

The Monday after GameJam, WTAG talked with Rob Lindeman, assistant professor of computer science at WPI and an IMGD faculty member, and Eric Sutman, an IMGD major and president of the Game Development Club.
