The students, collectively known as Radiant Games, developed the game Robert’s Quest. The game introduces the player to the benefits of renewable energy and how each individual can have a positive impact on the world, ruv.is reports.

The game has received considerable attention in the video game world. The Radiant Games team received a grant from Rannís (The Icelandic Centre for Research) and intend to put the game on the market.
