Apprentice candidates got creative with a virtual reality game called...Gordon's Lost His Badger

This week the remaining Apprentice 2016 candidates had the opportunity to push their imagination and design skills to the limit by creating their own virtual reality games, before pitching them to enthusiasts and industry experts at the London Comic Con exhibition.

Initially, the artistic possibilities seemed limitless. What designs would they conjure up? What magical themes would they invent? But most importantly, what names would they choose?

Well, the two teams chose Magic Shells and Gordon’s Lost His Badger.

Yes, the team led by Trishna, after much thought, landed on the name Gordon’s Lost His Badger…

The badger’s name was Astro Badger. This is him, by the way.

As you can imagine, viewers had a lot to say about the seemingly lazy game name.

So, surely they lost the task with a name like that, right?

Wrong. They won and team Magic Shells was left to battle it out in the boardroom – proving that, yes, miracles do happen.
