We’re big fans of contests here at the League of Gamemakers – in fact, many of us know one another from participating in game design contests. We’ve been judges, participants, mentors, winners, losers, and more, all for the sake of a little (mostly) friendly competition. Today, we wanted to cover a few of our favorite contest experiences.
So happy Friday – a few of our posts to tide you over until the weekend!
