As part of its new spring programming push for mtvU, a university campus-focused network, MTV is hosting student-made serious games meant to educate and raise student awareness of ongoing atrocities in Sudan. The games are featured at their own website, where readers can play early versions of each title. The game with the most votes by the end of the judging period will win the creators $50,000 donated by mtvU and the Reebok Human Rights Foundation, toward developing a fuller version of the game for wider release. Notes toward what a more developed version of each game would contain are included on the game's pages, along with links to play the trials. The four games are: Shanti Ambassadors - Crisis in Darfur, by Pete Kugler, Thanh Nguyen, and Katie Merrill of DigiPen Institute of Technology; Guidance, by Camilla Kydland, Clay Reister, Albith R. Delgado, TJ Jackson, and Sam Spiro of Carnegie Mellon University; Fetching Water, by Suzanna Ruiz, Ashley York, Mike Stein, Noah Keating, and Kellee Santiago of the University of Southern California; and The Village, by the same team from USC.
