Indie Game Development Contest

Every year, the Digital Designers Guild hosts an Indie Game Contest in which teams of up to five participants work together to develop a game, digital or analog, that follows the theme set out at the beginning of the year. This year’s theme is “games for change”.

The rules of the contest are simple:

  • All of the teams must have at least one UB student and all of the members of each team must be currently enrolled in either high school or college.
  • At least ten minutes of gameplay must be produced.
  • All submissions must adhere to the theme established at the start of the contest. This year’s theme: “games for change”.
  • All submissions must adhere to the University of Baltimore and Digital Designers Guild code of conduct.

A team of industry professionals and University of Baltimore professors judge the games on the basis of their adherence to and use of the themes, presentation and execution, and creativity. Additionally, a group of five social activists, will also lend their expertise in choosing the winners.

By default, there are first, second, and third place awards for both the digital and the analog game category.
