Academy of Interactive Entertainment
PatchWord
Undergraduate Tertiary Students - ACT
Many word games currently available on the app stores are very similar, requiring specific solutions to each level before the player can progress further. This alienates those players that like to test their vocabulary as well as those that are stuck on a level and don’t wish to use hints to help them solve it. ‘PatchWord’ presents players with random boards that have no predefined solution. Players are required to solve boards to be the same colour by making words using letters of the same colour, such that the letters used swap to the other colour on the game board. Letters can be changed as often as needed but words can only be used once per game, so players need to plan carefully as they progress through the game. The game also has no hint system so players will succeed purely on their ability.
ACT

The Australian National University
EatWithMe
Undergraduate Tertiary Students - ACT
The idea behind the app is simple; to help people to meet up with others, on the ANU campus, during lunch hours. Ideally, this would initiate conversations, debates and innovation across campus which would have never happened otherwise. Moreover, this app can foster cultural integration at the ANU. On a deeper level, with university stress a constant company for us all, meeting up with new and old friends alike can help with social isolation and prevent or help with any existing mental health issues so many students face. EatWithMe breaks down barriers within the community whilst providing a place for many to fight for their mental health.
