Virgin has begun the 100 day game project, offering a £10,000 prize for an aspiring game developer that comes up with the most unique concept for new mobile game. As well as being given the cash prize – with the plan being to put time and cash into the development of said game – the winner will work with the University of Abertay Dundee to get the game to a near finished state, debuting it in beta form at the Eurogamer Expo.
“‘Virgin Media’s 100 Day Game Project’ is on a mission to find the brightest talent in game design and creation, and, with input from the wider gaming community, help them to bring their game idea to life,” reads the promotional site. “We’re looking for amateur and student game designers from across the country to come to us with their concepts for a top quality mobile/tablet game. Utilising some of the industry’s brightest brains, we’ll select one concept and help the lucky winning team create their game and make their vision a reality. Reaching out to gaming fans everywhere, the project will culminate with the beta game launch at the Eurogamer Expo on 27th September.”
If you want to enter the 100 Day Game Project, you’ll need to have a team of 3-4 members all aged between 18 and 35. You have until May 27th to get your entry in.
