A group of childhood friends called Team Masheen and their entry â€˜Super Punchâ€™ came in first place to win $25,000, What willÂ they do with all that cash? Well they are already in the process of starting their own studio â€˜Bit Shift Gamesâ€™ and already put up their website.
â€œWe get back home and we are going to start talking about it next Wednesday and and do the necessary steps that we need to get set up as a business on the infrastructure side,â€ said Pieter Parker, a 22 year-old Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) student studying digital audio who designed the graphics for Super Punch; the name of their first-place submission.
â€œWeâ€™re just going to plow right into it.â€
