The Ludicious – Zürich Game Festival is calling for entries in its international competition for 2018 and invites game makers around the world to participate.
The Innovation Award — for international developers, and the Emerging Talent Award — for international students, will each be awarded by a high-profile jury seeking out highly creative and original games. The innovation can be present in any aspect, be it design, narrative, business model, and more.
For its fourth edition, Ludicious – Zürich Game Festival is offering two prizes with a total value of 12,000 Euro — of which 8,000 Euro are reserved for the Innovation Award and 4,000 Euro for the Emerging Talent Award.
The competition is explicitly aimed at small studios and developers working with equally small budgets.
New ideas and approaches in game design, gameplay, aesthetics, narrative, and business model are among the judging criteria.
The winners in all categories will be picked at the next edition of Ludicious from 18th to 21st January, 2018 at the Zeughaushof in Zürich, Switzerland.
Submissions can be entered via the official website.
