The Game Development Challenge is an annual competition hosted by Saint Martin's Institute of Higher Education as an extra-curricular activity.
It is designed to give participants the chance to gain experience in the world of game development, where participants are grouped together in teams according to their abilities, so that within the timeframe of the competition these teams are tasked to create a game based upon a given theme.
The GDC starts around the second week of July and ends around mid-November. Each team is made up of a maximum of five members which will be mentored throughout the competition by the coordinators. At the end, the work produced will be judged and a winner will be announced.
Each team will have an hour of mentoring, once every three weeks until the final submission day. The team's progress will be assessed and help is given where required.
Games are judged by industry professionals and feedback is given to team members.
Prizes are given when the winners are announced. Unity goodies will also be available.
|1st Place||€500 and a Unity Pro (6 month) subscription.|
We know that not everyone knows how to create a game. For some this competition will be their first taste at what goes on in game development.
At Saint Martin's we feel that one should be given the opportunity to understand and learn new skills. We therefore provide a set of short courses, which are required to create games.
