Indie GameDev India partnered with NASSCOM Gaming & Animation Forum and organized the first national BYOG in India. The BYOG took place at the recently concluded 3rd edition of NASSCOM Game Developer Conference 2011 held at Pune.

Build Your Own Game (BYOG) is a development sprint in which game developers get together, team up and make games. This is the 4th BYOG since July 2010. A BYOG usually stretches over a period of 48hrs in which teams do focussed game development sprints and is very useful in creating prototypes and proof of concepts to showcase and pitch game ideas.
The jury members consisted of Rahul Razdan, Ian Livingstone, Hrishi Oberoi, Sumit Mehra and Anando Mukherjee. The final themes to build your game were Lasers, Physics and Society.
Winners of the BYOG are-
The winning team named Abusive Monkey and their project was “Lilly Dream” or “Project Dream”. Team members include Vasu Chaturvedi, Adriene Cherneau, Emmanuel Djobet and Idrys Dogue. All are students of DSK Supinfogame.
Second place was taken by team SIGA.1 and their project “FiZZiKs”. Team members include Gallier Benjamin, Kulwinder Arora, Nikhil Birla and Aniket Dabholkar. All are game designing students from DSK Supinfogame.
Third place was taken by Kushagragour and his project 'Fun with Force'.
The NASSCOM Gaming & Animation Forum is committed to the nurturing of the game development initiatives in India and annually organizes a game developer conference as one of its many initiatives to achieve this objective.
