This year‚??s Make Something Unreal Live (http://www.unrealengine.com/en/news/science_takes_center_stage_in_epic_games_make_some thing_unreal_live_2013/) is a competition ‚??open to teams of six to 10 members consisting of current full-time university students.‚?? The grand prize of full Unreal engine licences tasks entrants with making something from scratch using the Unreal engine, with the theme of ‚??Our Mendelian inheritance: genetics and genomics.‚?? The full brief is here (http://www.unrealengine.com/files/downloads/Make_Something_Unreal_Live_2013_Team_Brief.pdf). The reason for this theme is that the competition is now backed by The Wellcome Trust (http://www.wellcome.ac.uk/), the charitable foundation which promotes scientific ambition in the UK and around the world. Wellcome‚??s Dr. Daniel Glaser said of the alliance with Epic: ‚??The Wellcome Trust is committed to using games and gaming culture as a means of engaging people with science, working to network the talent and knowledge of scientists and developers and offering a range of funding schemes.‚??

Science and games, together again: that‚??s an inter-disciplinary fist-bump, right there.
