GK Youth Leaders Launch Playing For Peace Game Design Challenge


With funds provided by the AMD Foundation, Global Kids youth leaders have been working with E-Line media to develop their first collaborative AMD Social Impact Game Design Challenge, which launched this month: Playing For Peace. Youth around the country are being asked to use Gamestar Mechanic to design games promoting peace and the end of war.

These high school students chose the topic of ending war, developed the challenge game about two societies in conflict over shared water resources, worked on the design brief and banner, and will be amongst the team of judges.

The challenge ends April 30, 2012. The top prize winner will win an AMD-powered laptop, a three year Premium Subscription to Gamestar Mechanic, and a personalized t-shirt featuring original Gamestar Mechanic artwork and a screenshot of their game.
