Inertia, the 2D platform arcade game created by students from The Guildhall at SMU-in-Plano, is one of the big winners ($130,000 in cash and prizes) of the second annual Indie Game Challenge. The eight members of SMU’s Team Hermes are enrolled in the Master’s degree program in video game design at The Guildhall. In addition, a four-member team was named as one of three finalists  in the National STEM Video Game Challenge in Washington, D.C. The educational game Slime Garden teaches scientific methodology by incorporating experimentation and simulation. The Guildhall recently was named one of the top graduate programs in video game design by The Princeton Review.
