Do you believe that games can be more than just a bit of fun? Is designing games your thing? Do you think games can contribute to the understanding of science? If this sounds like you, we’d love to see you at the Persuasive Games Competition!
The CHI+MED project and UCL Interaction Centre is inviting teams of students to design a game that will be made freely available on errordiary.org. Prizes will be awarded at the final showcase, including £1000 for first place, £500 for runner up and £500 for the people’s choice. The competition is only open to students, though you can be studying at any level of higher education, at any institution, and in any area.
Have a look at our competition webpage to find out more.
Please make sure to bring along your ticket and student ID to confirm your student status.
