  • Results From Game Design Challenge: Home Sweet Home

  •  When you think of your hometown, what do you remember most? Is it the weather? The culture? Do certain memories come to mind? Or perhaps you spent a lot of time moving, and your "hometown" means something entirely different to you.

    No matter the case, the place or places in which we grow up can have a lasting impact on our lives. These places were our home as we grew and matured, and thus they became a significant part of who we are.

    Now, when it comes to game design, how would you communicate the experience of living in your home town to another player?

    In its latest Game Design challenge, Game Career Guide asked its readers to design a game that in some way captures the essence of their home towns.

    What follows are the best and most original entries we received. Here are our top picks.
