A University of Wisconsin-Stout student from McFarland, Wis., recently won the first 48-hour game programming competition sponsored by the local chapter of the International Game Developers Association.

Five new games were developed during the two-day period. Michael Flaherty, a game design and development major, won the competition with his game, “Circuit Ultimate Fever.” There are plans to publish the game with Xbox Live Indie Games for the Xbox 360.

The names of the other four games that were developed were “Rocket Zombie,” “Star Stream,” “Ludwig’s Intergalactic Adventure” and “iTank.”
