It seems that somebody is following Doug Lowenstein’s advice, as Microsoft has recently announced a game development contest called the Games for Change Challenge for college students to make games with real-world significance. They have chosen the touchy subject of global warming for the topic. All games must be made in Microsoft’s XNA Game Studio Express program, and the winners might even be used with Xbox Live Arcade or Games for Windows Live Arcade.
This is a great decision on the part of Microsoft, and I’m very interested in seeing some of these games. How do you think someone would incorporate global warming into an interesting game?
