Videogame Contest Now Open for Professionals, Hobbyists and Students

The Escapist and Extra Credits have teamed up with Evergreen Events, the host of the 2011 LOGIN Conference, to produce the first-ever “Extra Credits Innovation Awards” that celebrate developers’ most daring and creative additions to the industry. Submissions are open between now and April 20, and the awards ceremony will take place at 6 PM on the night of May 17 in the Theatre at Bellevue’s Meydenbauer Convention Center in Seattle, WA.

The awards will celebrate the risks developers take to help progress the industry’s evolution and create games and technologies of the highest level of polish and refinement. Winners will demonstrate advancement in the following categories:

  • Innovation in Game Design
  • Innovation in Narrative Delivery
  • Most Unbelievably Awesomely Fun
  • Genre Buster Award
  • Positive Impact Innovator
  • LOGIN Special Award for Innovation in Multiplayer

The Escapist will be accepting videogame submissions from any and all game developers, from major studios to school projects. Finalists will be announced May 2, and at least one representative must be present at the LOGIN festivities to demonstrate their game on May 17.

LOGIN has also created a special $50 pass for Extra Credits fans to take part in the Extra Credits Room, which is happening all day on May 17. During the day, LOGIN’s Extra Credits pass will grant access to many exciting panels, ranging from a discussion about the future of consoles to famous designers sharing the games they’ve always wanted to make, but haven’t yet had the chance.
