Computer Graphics 2 and 3 Lab

Hall of Fame

The Institute of Computergraphics holds a course on programming a 3D-graphics game each year. Since students are very motivated if they get a chance to do that, what they wanted to do all along, the results are very impressive. This Hall of Fame presents the best programs of the last years.
