The ESA (Entertainment Software Association) announced today that they will be hosting a game development competition for students which will have five lucky winners showcasing their games at this year’s E3.
Students from all colleges and universities that include video game development programs are invited to participate in the Electronic Entertainment Expo College Game Competition. Interested parties can start submitting their details from March 15 to April 19. Note that there can only be one submission from each institute and that the submitted details should include the game’s story and assets of a playable version.
A panel of professionals from our game and media industry will select the five best games from the lot and will contact their respective developers by May 10. All five finalists will be given their very own display space at E3, where one overall winner will be announced during the expo.
“The collegiate game competition is an important step for the ESA in encouraging and rewarding students pursuing careers in video game development”, said ESA president and CEO Mike Gallagher in a press statement. “Our learning institutions house so much innovation and talent that will shape the future of our industry and ESA intends to honor student achievement and provide a deserved spotlight at E3.”
