  • Results From Game Design Challenge: Pool Party!

    - Danny Cowan
  • With summer arriving, pools everywhere are opening up to hot summer crowds. From city-run public pools to massive water parks, taking a dip with others to cool off from the heat is a summer tradition for many all over the world. But while a few games such as the recent Swim-Out have used swimming pools as a backdrop, it's not a setting you see developers use very often. Let's see if we can change that.
