There’s just over a week left to enter the Future Games Contest, which is looking for small companies wishing to win up to £25,000 for the development of new games prototypes which use games technology in interesting and innovative new ways.
Winners will not only get the cash, but have their game (or technology) trialled with consumers, for instant feedback and focus testing before launch.
Entry itself couldn’t be simpler. There’s an online form to be filled in and competitors must submit a 2 x minute pitch via YouTube.
Entries must address one of the following areas. Each area is, as you’ll notice, supported by a fairly major global media or arts organisation…
- The use of games technology in a non-gaming context (supported by IPC Media)
- Social games using existing communities (supported by Tate)
- Music games application (supported by EMI)
The call for entries closes at 12pm on THURSDAY 15th of SEPTEMBER, 2011. 12 companies will be selected to move forward to the second stage and will be notified on Friday 23rd September.
The winners will be announced in the middle of October.
Entry is FREE. So head over to the Future Games website and enter your idea. Or you can find out more on the IC Tomorrow Facebook page.
