Subatomic Studios Co-Founder, Sergei Gourski (2003) and fellow Cogswell Alumnus, Ash Monif (2002) have a lot to be excited about. Not only has their iPhone game Fieldrunners been nominated as one of the finalists in the Indie Game Challenge Gamer’s Choice Award, but it has also been featured in the latest (January 2010) issue of Game Developer Magazine. In an article entitled, Rethinking User Interface by Brian Robbins, Fieldrunners is praised for its ability to let players make their moves with great accuracy. It does this “through a combination of advanced touch detection logic and allowing users to zoom far into the gameboard as well.”

Congratulations to Subatomic Studios for the recent recognition Fieldrunners has received!
