Game creation contest

Big video game contest organised by MAGIC

 

For the third time, MAGIC comes back with a unique video game contest.

 

As you probably already figured out, at Shibuya we are truly passionate about video games. ,We believe that many current video game productions are too focused on esthetic and often have lacked of a truly interesting and exciting game-play. For us game-play is a fundamental part of enjoyable gaming. We can’t help thinking about the old days when, not matter what the game, console, computer or arcade, we could play it over and over again, and still enjoy it every time.

 

Our goal is to encourage those SPECIAL FEW who put game-play in the center of their game creations.
