List of Game Design Challenges
The Design Challenge is an exercise in becoming a game developer, asking you to look at games in a new way -- from the perspective of a game creator, producer, marketer, businessperson, and so forth.

Once a week, a design question will be proposed. There will be one week to answer it. The following week, the best answers and the names of those who submitted them will be posted along with some commentary.

Note: I'll use this message slot to provide updates each week. Adrir can incorporate them as they come.

Occasionally if you send an email to the submission address asking for one or two days extension, you will get it. If you send a submission three or four days later, though, you're SOL.

Appears this didn't happen, but I'd truly appreciate if the Moderator's could also provided a link to the results of the challenges beside the challenges in the list above.

Appreciation in advance for anyone who does this.

Hi Mods,

Is there some way the winners of the challenge could be displayed with each one? That's the coolest part.

Hi bob and bittman,

I originally created this thread from a suggestion by a friend to help people to tackle the challenges they might have missed. As such, posting links to the results wouldn't be much fun!

If you really want to see the results, then I suggest using google with "" as a prefix in your search criteria. The relevent articles arn't that hard to find.

A great way to do talent scouting :P

I've cleaned, reformatted and updated the list - so anyone planning on blitzing through some of the previous challenges may do so!

Have fun.
