A new program launched by the ESA for E3 will have the best student games showcased at this year's show. The E3 College Game Competition lets an institution with a game program submit one game representing their college, and the five best of those will be showcased at E3. A panel of game industry veterans and professionals will judge these entries.
This is an excellent opportunity for up-and-coming game makers as they'll get to show their work in the same place as the pros do. And the members of the game press are everywhere, so there's even more exposure opportunities beyond that.
Tokyo Game Show does something like this for Japan, and it's always neat to check out their schools' latest creations. Some of the weirdest stuff comes from these schools.
For those interested, contact the ESA via email at ESA@theESA.com. Submissions will be accepted starting March 15, with the final deadline hitting April 19.
