We want to Congratulate Gbanga, a mixed reality game design studio in Zurich, Switzerland, for winning the grand prize of $150,000 and a year-long consulting contract with Universal for Universal and Unity's GameDev Challenge. Gbanga created a game called Voltron: Cubes of Olkarion. They beat out 550 entries! DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender Executive Producer Lauren Montgomery was one of the judges.
Here are the people from the Gbanga team that created Voltron: Cubes of Olkarion:
Game design lead Robin Bornschein; art director Yury Schicker; producer Andreas Halter; quality manager Ramona Ent; animation designer Manuela Seiler; AI programmer Alex Steinacher; system engineer Marc Steiner; programmers Benjamin Klingler, Jonas Krucher, and Kevin Biehler; programmer intern Federico Mantovani; testers Valeria Glauser and Ascan Helfer; writer and executive producer Robbert van Rooden; and executive producer Matthias Sala.
Congrats, again, Gbanga!
