An online game produced by the Science Musuem in the UK called Launchball has woth both Best Game and the overall Best in Show awards at the 2008 SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas.
This is an incredible achievement for a cultural organisation as SXSW is one of the most influential and well attended conferences in the world for the cuttng edge of online developments – it is also a confernce that is normally dominated by the more commerical end of web developments that sit within the innnovations within the creative industries. This is not the normal domain of musuems.
Well done to the team at the Science Musuem. Mike Ellis who worked on the project talks about his expereince in his blog.
