Gamify Your PhD
A new way to communicate cutting-edge research
This year's competition is now closed.
Gamify Your PhD brought together six scientists and 21 games developers to form teams and create games over two days. These teams successfully delivered addictive, entertaining and challenging beta games, with a variety of different genres deployed to communicate scientific ideas in new and innovative ways, from survival games to puzzles, shoot-em-ups to 'Guitar Hero'-styled offerings.

These took place at the Wellcome Trust on 3 and 4 September 2012. The selected participants gathered to make science communications history as well as games.
