Contrast '08: A Brief Introduction...

is a 24-hour game design competition jointly organized by the Communications and New Media (CNM) Society and Game Development Group (GDG) from the National University of Singapore. Due to the overwhelming and well-received response from the participants in previous years, CONTRAST is running for its third year, with a brand new theme.

CONTRAST is Singapore’s very first 24-hour non-stop game design competition targeting tech-savvy game development enthusiasts from all tertiary institutions to showcase their talent and creativity. This year, it will be held on the 12th September 2008 in one of the computer laboratories of NUS. Students can form teams comprising of 2-5 members, and they will have to work under pressure and racing against time to conceptualize, design and build original games within a time limit of 24 hours within an enclosed environment.

The theme for this year’s competition will be the Environment, in view of promoting environmental awareness amongst youths in Singapore. From the games, we aim to address environmental issues affecting our earth today and allow others to learn more and lend a hand through interactive games.

Register, have fun and be part of the this meaningful competition right now!
