Because gaming and game development has interested him as a child, Oleksandr decided to pursue his graduate career here at WPI for its impeccable game development program. While he was in enrolled in the University of Lviv, he began working with a close friend, Ostap Hrytsyshyn, on the game Wooplex, which he has continued to cultivate in his academic program at WPI. Oleksandr and his team won the grand prize for Wooplex at the MassDiGi Game Challenge held on February 6th and 7th of this year. The MassDiGI Game Challenge helps indie, start-up, and student game development entrepreneurs hone their ideas and products for launch. The game also won in the Indie Beta/Near Release category of the competition. In his free time, Oleksandr also enjoys playing soccer.

Please join us in congratulating Oleksandr and his team for this incredible achievement!
