|Overview:||Winning the IGF for Best Student Game was a dream come true - but then what? This talk details the ups and downs, circuitous paths, and the lessons learned along the way while developing the student game FRACT into a commercial release. Learning on the job is challenging enough, and the talk shares what happens when life throws something unexpected your way.
