Dare To Be Digital 2007 will now have a presence in the UK, bringing the game design competition to the European company for the first time. The London competition will be sponsored by global powerhouse Electronic Arts at its Guildford studios.
Teams of five students will be selected as competitors, and will then be given 10 weeks to create a video game prototype. Finalists will compete against other global competitors to provide one worldwide winning prototype."There's a great pool of undiscovered talent within London's universities and colleges. Dare is fantastic at discovering and fostering talent and helping aspiring game developers rise to the surface. The LDA is proud to support the first Southern heat and we hope the eventual winning team originates from the London region!" Said a spokesperson for the group behind the competition.
Who knows? This could lead to the next Mario. Power to the independent game creators!
