GameCareerGuide has launched its latest Game Design Challenge -- one that asks you to reboot an existing game franchise from the ground up. To quote the introduction to the Challenge, which has just been posted to our sister site: "In film, the Batman series was famously rebooted by 2005's Batman Begins, which led to the massive critical and popular success of The Dark Knight. "In games, Tomb Raider: Legend rebooted a franchise that was once among the most popular in gaming, after 2003's dreadful Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness. Now, rumors have even surfaced that the series is due yet another restart. "More recently, the to-be-released Max Payne 3 changes drastically what that series is all about; noir traded for gangland warfare. A youthful, sarcastic hero is traded for a bitter old man. "While the success of these reboots has been various, and their necessity debatable, there's no doubt that it's a prime trend. "What would you do, if you were given the power? What series would you reimagine? That's what we're asking. Take an existing game series -- it would be best to choose one that's flagging in quality or popularity, though that's not expressly required -- and re-envision it your own way." For the full details, including how to enter, head on over to the challenge, 'Rebooting The Series', on GameCareerGuide.
