Train2Game news: Virgin launch 100 day game project contest for aspiring game developers

Train2Game students have the chance to design and publish a mobile video game if they take part in Virgin Media’s 100 day game project contest.

“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.” reads the announcement.

“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.”

To enter Virgin Media’s 100 day game projects, you need to be in a team of 3 or 4 members aged 18-35, and pitch your iOS or Android game using this entry form.

Entries will be judged by a panel of experts on Tuesday 12th June, with the winning team being taken to game development labs in Dundee to build their game between 18th June and 26th September. The beta of the winning game will be presented at the Eurogamer Expo at the end of September.

FULL information about entry criteria and all terms and conditions are on the Virgin Media 100 day game project website.

Will you and a small team of fellow Train2Game students give this a go? Keep in mind that this isn’t a Train2Game contest, but it’s a great opportunity.
