The Major Sponsor of the Competition is CYTA and is organized with the support of Wargaming. The universities Frederic, Neapolis and UCLan are University Collaborators, and the competition is supported by CCS and the Youth Board of Cyprus.
The deadline for team registrations is December 17, 2021.
The "GDC / LOGIPAIGNION" competition is especially important for both students of the secondary and technical education, as well as university students, since it encourages inventiveness and creativity, as well as logical and analytical thought in solving complex problems. Computer game creation incorporates all the above and in addition it necessitates cooperation, communication, and coordination between team members. At the same time, the educational aspect of the game development process is highlighted through the necessity to apply specific sub-skills in the process such as the use of graphic design tools and programming while working in the context of topics that interest our young people.
In addition, the growing interest in science and technology, graphics, augmented and virtual reality, robotics, artificial intelligence, intelligent systems, etc., create the need for an event such as this one. The event, unique in its kind in Cyprus, offers a creative outlet for young people to employ their skills and abilities and will give a boost to their enthusiasm for game development while at the same time, it may inspire more people to explore this route.
