Next year a jury of game industry professionals from Ubisoft, Rockstar and other ventures will seek to honor games that provoke emotional experiences in the inaugural Emotional Game Awards.
The affair is the brainchild of French video game producer and researcher Dr. Erik Geslin, and it may offer developers a new space to garner attention for their work and celebrate games as a medium of emotional expression.
It's also a potential opportunity to take part in a big ol' game jam. The EGA organizers intend to hold a 40-hour "Emotional Game Jam" that will be livestreamed closer to the event, which is slated to take place on February 12th.
Submissions for the EGAs are expected to open this Friday, at which point curious developers can check the EGA website for more details on how to submit their work for consideration.
