Session Name Upgrade Humanity in 60 Seconds Flat: The Game Design Challenge 2012
Speaker(s) Noah Falstein, Richard Lemarchand, Jason Rohrer, Eric Zimmerman
Company Name(s) The Inspiracy, Naughty Dog, Independent, Independent
Track / Format Game Design
Overview

The Game Design Challenge is back for a ninth year of bizarre and innovative game concepts. Join us as last year's champion Jason Rohrer returns to face off against two new contestants.

In the past, designers have taken on challenges from a game incorporating real-world death to last year's challenge of designing a game that was also a religion. The design challenge this year? Design a game with a measurably positive impact on its players - that can be played in 60 seconds or less.

Every year, the game design challenge explores current industry trends. This year we embrace the idea of a game with real-world impact - but also one that fits the social media addicted, ADD lifestyle of contemporary society.

At the session, the panelists will present a unique solution to this game design problem. As always, you will play a crucial role. After each panelist presents, the audience will vote to see who will become the winner of the 2012 Game Design Challenge.
