Game Design Challenge: Photo Challenge: Island
 
Greetings everyone!

Just wanted to pop in to let you all know what the newest Game Design Challenge has begun!

For this one, your task is to design a game based on a beautiful picture of Thailand's James Bond Island. We can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Hey there!

My game design for the challenge is done, but the actual "island" is a relatively tiny part of it. Although most of the early stage of the game is spent on this first island, as the game goes on the "island" idea start to get modified and may (or may not) lose its meaning. As the game progression is prety much created by the player as he plays, he can either create many islands, or not a single one, for example. Is that a problem to abandon that main idea as the game goes on? Does it have to be entirely focused on an island?

Thanks, good luck for everyone!

That's not a problem at all! The island picture is just meant to be a jumping off point -- anything you do beyond that is fair game. Even if the island only plays a tiny role in the final design, that still counts!

Hope you all are having a good time with this challenge. :)

Every time one of these photo challenges comes up I think there is no way I'm going to think of something interesting. Then, all of a sudden, an idea pops into my head. I think I'm going to be focusing on the mythology of the island.

Hi TCurtis,

Were the results posted in any particular order or just random ? I really want to know about that because it's easier to compare your entry with others if there was some kinds of rankings.

Thank you very much !

halleylight,

The entries aren't ranked -- they are essentially the "cream of the crop" of all the entries we received for that particular challenge. It's actually quite difficult to rank them in terms of quality, since often these game designs are so different it's like comparing apples to oranges.

That said, the ones that make it into the "Best Entries" list are the ones we deem the most impressive, the most creative, and the most viable to turn into an actual game.

I hope this answers your question!
