Winners

On behalf of the sponsors and judges, The Rookies would like to congratulate the following caetgory winners.

Winner

Youri Hoek

yourihoek

Netherlands | HKU University of the Arts Utrecht

When I was a kid, I used to play MMORPG games which gave me a lot of inspiration to make my own "games". Since I had no idea how to make actual games back then, I would simply draw out a map/world on paper and draw items and monsters in it. The player would just use their finger as a pawn to move around in this world. Then one day I learned that 3D modeling software and game engines were a thing, so I didn't hesitate to try them out and maybe make a real game someday.

People's Choice

Colin Scott

colinscott94

Portugal | ODD School

I have always been in awe of all things 3d... VFX, Games. I first played a video game at the some kids' house down the street and was blown away but being from South Africa there isn't much exposure to the 3D, VFX or Game industry. It was only once I moved to Portugal and attended ODD School that I became driven to build a career in the game industry.
