  • Results from Game Design Challenge: Space is the Place

    - Danny Cowan
  • With NASA's recent discovery of over 700 new planets, there has been increased speculation in the media regarding the possibility of life existing elsewhere in the universe. What sorts of physical environments might these newly discovered planets host? What kind of life forms might they sustain? Video games have speculated about alien worlds for decades, but they're largely portrayed as hostile worlds for humans to investigate, escape from, or destroy.

    For Game Career Guide's latest Game Design Challenge, we challenged our readers to design a game set on an alien planet, where no humans are presents. Here are our top picks.
