◆ About “God Game Creator Evolution”
This project is a project to nurture a new generation of young game creators. By linking 1. contest events, 2. program broadcasting, and 3. community management, we will discover and nurture the talents of creators.
1. Contest event
We will solicit entries from the general public and hold a contest event for indie game creators. Participants create their own original games and compete on ideas and quality. It is an event where you can enjoy the charm of the work while enjoying the game commentary by a famous commentator. The judges will include a wide range of
participants, from game creators who have created famous works that everyone knows to media artists who are active in fields other than games, and will evaluate from a wide range of perspectives.
In this event, two judging meetings were held from the start of entry in July, and the final contestants were decided. Nine sets of creators were selected at the first judging session held in July. From there, we developed original games, and at the second round of judging at the end of October, four teams were given tickets to participate in the finals.
In this competition, we will select the “work with the most
‘innovation that expands the framework of the game'”. We are also planning to conduct a popular vote from the general public.
The outline of the first competition is as follows.
