Innovative game ideas come alive @HackFMI 4.0

November 11, 2014

How does it sound – first-person horror game that follows your heart rate and you can hear it through your headset? The game is self-adapting
in order to be more engaging – for example, depending on the speed of your pulse, your character begins to move faster or slower.
All this combined with scary characters and well selected soundtrack. Isn’t that awesome?

Well, this is the project of several guys who called themselves – “A Nameless Band” team. It was a part of the HackFMI 4.0, where
more than 250 young people, separated into 55 teams, participated in the fall Hackathon. They gathered for the serial hack event at the
Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics at Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”. The Hack tradition dictates – it begins on the late afternoon on
Friday and ends in the early hours on Monday.  So on the 7th of November the hackers were ready for three sleepless nights with a lot of emotions
and coding.

As a Hack FMI partner, Nemetschek Bulgaria gave a special prize. “Razer Kraken Pro Neon” headset went to the “A Nameless Band” team for
their heart rate following project. A lot of great game ideas came alive on the Hackathon such as platform for book-games where the user
can create and play them, local 2D multiplayer battle arena and many others.

We can’t wait for another portion of great ideas on the next Hackaton.
