Media Communication and Computer Sciences student nominated for German computer game award

The German Computer Game Prize (Deutscher Computerspielpreis) is the most important award in the German video game industry. As a joint initiative of industry and the German Bundestag, the Prize has been honouring the best games "Made in Germany" since 2009.

From 451 entries, a high-ranking jury of experts selected the award winners based on aspects like quality, innovative content, game fun as well as cultural and educational standards.

With his video game "Makis Adventure", Mateo Covic, a student of Media Communication and Computer Sciences at the Faculty of Communication and Environment, was nominated now for the category "Young Talent Award- Best Prototype" and won €25,000 in prize money.

"The nomination is a huge milestone for me and a very big success, considering that I only started programming video games two years ago," says Mateo happily.

The Faculty of Communication and Environment is also very proud of this success and congratulates him on his achievement.
