Games for Change Design Contest Winners Announced in Paris

Games for Change has issued a press release announcing the winners of the Xbox 360 Games for Change Challenge.

The announcement came at the Louvre in Paris.

Each of the entries was created using Microsoft’s XNA Game Studio software. The winners are:

  1. CityRain from Mother Gaia Studio in Brazil
  2. Future Flow from Belgium’s Drunk Puppy
  3. CleanUp from the South Korean team Gomz

Suzanne Seggerman, President and Co-founder of Games for Change, commented:

What’s most exciting about this game contest is that not only are the brightest young people from around the world engaged in creating these new games, they are also laying the foundation for a new genre – socially-responsible video games. And this is where it all begins.

Games for Change bills itself as "the primary non-profit behind the new movement using video games to promote social change." The organization teamed up with Microsoft to offer the game design contest  based on environmental themes.

    Seems to me that game developers have a difficult enough time making games fun to play.  Let’s not confuse them further by getting them involved in making games socially responsible too.

    Drunk Puppy. Now that’s a name I can get behind. Good to see this shift in thinking. Maybe folks will take Games as art and socially responsible seriously now?
