As part of the European Conference on Game-Based Learning (ECGBL), which is being held in Porto, Portugal on 3-4 October this year there is a competition to find the best educational game. The aims of this competition are:
· To provide an opportunity for educational game designers and creators to participate in the conference and demonstrate their game design and development skills in an international competition.
· To provide an opportunity for GBL creators to peer-assess and peer-evaluate their games.
· To provide ECGBL 2013 attendees with engaging and best-practice games that showcase exemplary applications of GBL.
Games submitted for the competition are expected to accomplish an educational goal. Authors should be prepared to explain their design and evaluation process, why it is innovative (the game itself or its educational setting) and how they achieved (will achieve) the impact they seek. The game should be in a development state that engages the player for at least 10 minutes. The closing date for submissions is the 15th of June 2013.
