New initiative of NASSCOM

NASSCOM Gaming Forum is proud to be associated with UNESCO MGIEP’s first creative experiment for broader engagement on EPSD and Global Citizenship - Developing a Game and a Mobile application..The objective of this Game and Mobile Application is to promote EPSD in informal and lifelong learning, develop in the students/ players a holistic understanding of peace and sustainability issues, the underlying interdependency between them as well as how individual actions and choices have an impact on the overall picture and our shared world. However, while this is one of the intended outcome, we want the Game itself to be pure recreation and not ‘serious’. We would be holding joint orientation programs in Bangalore, Hyderabad and Mumbai on 18 Sept, 19 Sept and 1 Oct respectively. Post which studios and developers will be given 1 month to develop a game which will be pitched to UNESCO MGIEP and jury at Nasscom Game Developer Conference 2014 . The selected studio/ developer can expect seed funding of anywhere between $ 16, 550 - $ 33,000 where they work closely with UNESCO to publish the game.
