Pong Competition on Dreamhack Winter 2013

Preparing for Dreamhack Winter 2013 we got this idea: let’s do a pong competition on the main stage. Dreamhack Hall D is huge, the event itself breaks world-records. It was really inspiring to get this done. After two days of intense work we got a main-stage spot, sponsors, an antique tv, prizes and a recording to take home. We didn’t know what to expect and it kicked ass! 🙂
