Pub Revives Retrogames

Gert Svensson & Henric Zazzi, PDC

The PDC Pub provides an informal opportunity for researchers and students at KTH to discuss high performance computing research and related matters with PDC staff while enjoying refreshments. This year the Pub was held on the 9th of May. As usual, Gert Svensson (PDC's Deputy Director) gave guided tours of the PDC computer hall, while a vintage game competition was held in the SeRC room, with a prize for whoever achieved the highest score in Pinball. With a score rumoured to be around 44 million, the lucky winner was awarded a free meal at the Syster O Bror restaurant. People could also try out a selection of different retrogames on the big screen and relive classic titles like Doom and Dig Dug.
