The gates are open: 2015 Game Challenge registration begins
By Tim Loew, executive director, MassDiGI
One of the events I look forward to most each year is our big MassDiGI Game Challenge pitch competition. There really is nothing like it. Come experience it for yourself – team registration and general admission for the 2015 edition is now open.
Since the Game Challenge began in 2012, over 120 teams have entered some pretty amazing games including titles like The Counting Kingdom, Catlateral Damage, PWN, Wobbles, Depression Quest and Pathogen – just to name a few of the winners from past years. In addition, over 700 competitors – be they indies, students or hobbyists – had the chance to meet with industry mentors, hear from experts, share knowledge, split $50,000 in prize value, have fun, play and celebrate games.
This year, we made a couple of changes worth pointing out – 1.) moving the event from early March to early February and 2.) redefining Concept and Prototype to Demo/Alpha and Beta/Near Release.
In addition to those changes, we are also pleased to note that this year’s event t-shirt design will come from the winner of, you guessed it, the Game Challenge t-shirt design contest. Give it shot.
Other than that, thanks to the sponsors, mentors, judges and volunteers, it should be as exciting as always.
Of course, we couldn’t pull any of this off without such great teams and their games – the competition is the show. I look forward to seeing you there.
