SPOnG notes with some interest today that the BBC has launched a games design competition for 13 to 19 year olds, to be judged by Peter ?Game of Freewill? Molyneux.
Interested readers can head over here to have a closer look at what they?ll need to do.
The competition blurb reads: ?Your Task: Your task is to come up with a great idea for an online game inspired by art, film, music, writing or dance. We're looking for a game offering about 5?10 minutes of game play. The winning game will be made using Flash. You don't need technical or illustrative skills to take part but you do need to be passionate about games.?
Hang on? a game inspired by dance? Surely the BBC needs to update its thinking somewhat. Games these days are inspired by urban youth talking about their car vinyls and murdering prostitutes. So is there a vegetarian conspiracy afoot at the BBC?
Far be it from us to point any fingers, but on a visit to Lionhead last year, we saw Peter Molyneux drinking tea. Herbal tea.
