In keeping with NSE’s role as the UK’s official university esports body, the theme for the inaugural Games Innovation Challenge is:
We want to see games that pit players against each other in some shape or form. Keep in mind that competitive games take many forms: players could compete through leaderboards, time trials, or head on. For those hoping to be crowned winners of the inaugural challenge contest, additional points will be available from the judges for a short plan that shows how your team envisages a competition being run. Remember, this is a games innovation challenge so think about innovative ideas you can include.
The NSE Games Innovation Challenge is intended for UK university students. However, we recognise that you may want to include friends that are not studying or are still at school. To be eligible to participate in the challenge contest, the majority of your declared team, as well as your nominated project lead, must be currently enrolled on a level 5 course or higher at a recognised UK higher education provider.
For the avoidance of doubt, you don’t need to be studying any specific course or be attending the same university as your teammates provided you meet the above criteria. If you don’t meet these requirements we’d still love to see your creations but unfortunately, you won’t be eligible for prizes.
If you have any questions about your eligibility you can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
Eligible submissions will be judged by a panel of industry experts from the world of game development and publishing. In line with the competition theme, this year’s judges will also include professionals from the world of esports.
Judges will assess submissions based on the criteria below so make sure to consider these carefully when planning your project:
As is often the case, you might not quite finish your project. If this happens, submit what you can and try to show the judges your vision for the finished project.
