Nuclear Science and Security Consortium Undergrad wins Best Student Game at the 2019 Serious Games Showcase and Challenge

Nuclear Science and Security Consortium (NSSC) Undergraduate Jake Tibbetts and the Project on Nuclear Gaming were awarded Best Student Game at the 2019 Serious Games Showcase and Challenge (SGS&C) for their work on the online game SIGNAL. SGS&C has been held annually since 2006 and is the premier venue for recognition of excellence in the field of Serious Games development. SIGNAL is part of a project lead by the University of California, Berkeley, aimed at understanding the impact of emerging technologies on strategic stability and nuclear risk reduction. Members of the team were a Berkeley Engineer, UNM Film & Digital Arts instructor, Jonathan Whetzel and UNM Film students, and advisors from Sandia National Labs, Lawrence Livermore National Lab, and NSSC. The SIGNAL online game is a 3-player experimental wargame, in which 3 countries, some armed with nuclear weapons, attempt to achieve national goals through diplomacy and conflict. Congratulations to Jake and the whole PONG team! Source: Nuclear Science and Security Consortium Blog
