Win $25,000 in Games for Change Videogame Design

19 02 2014
G4C will award a prize of up to $25,000, sponsored by the Schusterman Family Foundation, to create a space exploration game that takes players to the final frontier for Space IL, as it competes in the $20 million Google Lunar X Prize.
SpaceIL, a nonprofit organization, is working to land the first Israeli spacecraft on the moon. Through this mission, SpaceIL aspires to create a new “Apollo effect,” inspiring the next generation to think differently about science, engineering, technology, and math (STEM).
The challenge invites game designers to envision an interactive experience that encourages space exploration and at the same time captures comprehensive real-world data that will inform the mission of SpaceIL.
Three finalists will be selected to present their ideas on stage at the 11th Annual Games for Change Festival (April 22-24 & 26) with the full attention of attendees, potential funders, and a live jury. The winning design concept will be announced at the festival and in the media. The final game will be featured on the SpaceIL website.
