This week in its Game Design Challenge, GameCareerGuide asks readers to develop an idea for a new race-to-the-end game. Aspiring game designers participate in the challenges to let their creativity unfurl, but also to learn what kinds of questions developers have to answer before they can make a new game. The contests are created and judged by Manveer Heir, a designer at Raven Software, and staff from GameCareerGuide, the educational web site for game development and affiliate site of Gamasutra.com. The crux of the most recent “Race to the End” challenge is to take a standard style of board game and somehow make it not only interesting, but also electronic. Readers already have begun discussing how they will accomplish this on the site’s community forum (registration is free). Professional game developers are invited to take part in the challenge as well, or simply give feedback to the community about why their ideas are practical or impractical. The deadline to submit an entry is Wednesday, December 17, 2008, and the complete details of the challenge along with submission guidelines area available here.
