A premier gaming expo has awarded an IU instructor for his work.

Game Design adjunct instructor Ian Sundstrom, BFA’12, received “Best In Show” in the Independent, Student, and Experimental section at GDEX, an annual premier gaming expo in the Midwest.

His game, Stacks On Stacks (On Stacks), is a 3D block stacking game that challenges players to build stable, tall towers without knocking them over. SoSoS captures the joy and wonder of the childhood activity of block stacking – refreshed as a video game for audiences of all ages.
