Pinoy Team Win Microsoft Imagine Cup

Pinoy Team Win Microsoft Imagine Cup

July 21, 2010 Neil

The Philippine representative to the Microsoft Imagine Cup, a team named By Implication, won the first place in the game design category with their entry, Wildfire. The members of the team are Philip Cheang (ADMU), Wilhansen Li (ADMU), Rodrick Tan (ADMU), and Levi Tan-Ong (UP) and is  mentored by Kenneth Yu (DLSU).

“Wildfire is a game about saving the world. Opponents like rampant poverty, gender inequality, inadequate education and environmental degradation cannot be defeated by marching armies, secret potions or magic swords. This is a game about how they can be defeated.

Through volunteerism, social interaction, and nonviolent activism, players will explore a sprawling urban landscape, building up grassroots support and seeking legislation on key Millennium Development Goals. Standing in their way are the menacing “agents,” representing the various forces opposing positive societal change.

Wildfire’s ultimate goal is not only to offer a challenging, immersive gameplay experience, but also to promote universal awareness of the UN MDG’s, and how they can be achieved through concrete action.” –

The game is planned to be released for download. (As what I’ve understood in the news report.) I hope this spark interest to other programmers and game designers out there. There are thousands of talented programmers and designers…and hackers.

System Requirements:

  • Windows XP / Vista / 7
  • XNA 3.1 Runtime, .NET 3.5 framework
  • Core Duo 2GHz, 1GB RAM (or higher)
  • Graphics Card with Pixel Shader 2.0

Watch the demonstration of two versions of the game.

    Great website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics talked about in this
    article? I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get advice from other experienced individuals that share the
    same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Thank you!

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite
    reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people
    think about worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out
    the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
