The day of the Winners and Graduates: M-Labs recently hosted the most awaited day, following the Summer Program. With over 60 attendants and representatives from the winning teams, the event was full of hoots and fun! It was held on the ground and broadcasted live on Facebook to include everyone across the globe. We started off with some sessions by the leadership of Mindstorm Studios. The summer program started with over 1600 registrations from across Pakistan. In the second phase of the program, 350 students in 92 teams took part in the Rookie Game Jam 2021. 77 games were successfully submitted, making Rookie Game Jam 2021 the biggest game jam Pakistan has ever seen.
This year, we introduced game awards in appreciation of all the hard work and creativity that the participants had put in. With 7 categories covering the best game mechanics, environment, character design, to the concept.
Here are the awards listed with its winners:
Best Ending Scene went to Team 6THF for their game Eat Your Greens

After the categorical awards, we dived straight into the top 3 teams of the Rookie Game Jam 2021. We were ecstatic to have so many people returning for the Jam with upgraded skills and that grabbed our attention.
