2019 Game Challenge


The MassDiGI Game Challenge is a one-of-a-kind pitch competition and event that helps aspiring game developers launch new games. The 8th annual Game Challenge will be held on February 22 & 23, 2019 at Becker College’s Barrett Center in Worcester. As always it will feature industry mentors, veteran judges, talks and great prizes – you don’t want to miss it!

COMPETITORS: Team Captains may pre-register their teams here (pre-reg is closed as of Feb. 11, 2019). Please note that, in addition to a special location change for this year only, we expect to make additional minor modifications to the Game Challenge format and will offer a question and answer conference call for all Team Captains in late January/early February.

Registration is on a first come, first serve basis, so we encourage all interested teams to sign up as early as possible. The maximum number of competing teams is 40. Competing teams are required to provide team details and a game description etc. during the registration process.

  • Competitor pre-registration closes on Feb. 8, 2019 at 8:00pm ET EXTENDED TO FEB. 11, 2019 at 8:00pm ET.

We encourage all potential competitors to read the competition Rules in full prior to registering to ensure that you qualify. Updated Rules will be posted soon but in general they will be very similar to those from past years.

Contact us at info(at)massdigi.org with any questions! Good luck!
