  • Results From Game Design Challenge: Face Your Fears

    - Danny Cowan
  •  As the new semester kicks off, think back to your first day of school. For many children, starting school is a source of anxiety - it's a major shift in everyday routine, and daily classes introduce an entirely new set of challenges for kids to face.

    Over the years, however, children gradually learn to adapt to schoolwork, and fears begin to dissipate as school becomes a familiar part of daily life.

    But what if kids could safely face their fears in the context of a video game? For Game Career Guide's latest game design challenge, we asked our readers to design games about overcoming childhood fears. Here are our top picks!
