Interesting games from Imagine Cup 2015 Russian Final
17-18 April 2015 has been held the Russian Final of the world's largest technology competition Imagine Cup, which was attended by 21 student teams from all over Russia. These guys are traditionally presented their projects in three categories: "World Citizenship", "Innovations" and "Games", participation in the last of which ended with victory for our studio last year.
Sure we decided to take part in this significant event for us, we could not miss this event for several reasons: here are the unique atmosphere and the spirit of competition, huge number of talented and ambitious young people come from the whole country, and also around the competition was formed a professional and competent community during last years. Evgenii Romin was invited as a jury member in our favorite nomination "Games", we had participated as spectators, met a lot of new friends and got new connections and just had a good time.
It is worth noting that over the years the level and quality of projects consistently growing and winners were really the best. For more information of all the winners you can read, for example, here https://hi-tech.mail.ru/news/imagine-cup-2015-russia-goes-final.html or watch good report here http://lifenews.ru/mobile/news/152865 (caution: Russian!), but we want to share with you the projects from "Games".
There were 7 different games on different platforms and different degrees of development. In this table you can find some links on those projects, which were in stores before the Imagine Cup Russian Finals was started:

Join the group of developers, download their games and appls, give them any feedback. From our experience, we can say that it is very necessary at all stages of the project: so you can help make the project better, more interesting, more useful, etc.
3 winners of each category are now eligible to compete for participation in the international final, which will be held again in Seattle this summer, we in turn hope that Russia will again submit game project.
Instead of a conclusion: we recommend to you to participate in the Imagine Cup, if not as finalists, then at least as spectators. There is always spectacular, interesting and cool.
