The game industry in Boston has been quietly increasing in size. Game companies such as GSN Digital, Irrational Games and Turbine call New England home. With the impending release of the 3rd BioShock and PAX East right around the corner it’s a great place to be an aspiring game creator.
MassDiGI is…“a statewide center, designated by the Commonwealth, for academic cooperation, entrepreneurship and economic development across the Massachusetts digital and video games ecosystem.” I attended their 2nd annual Game Challenge. It was a 2-day event where teams competed for prizes, pitched their game idea to industry veterans and brainstormed with mentors. Watch the video above to hear what some of the teams created.
The 2013 Summer Innovation Program is organized by MassDiGI. It’s an “eleven-week program that includes housing, stipends, resources, mentoring and game development tools to help student teams finalize an original video game and prepare it for launch.” You can apply here.
