THE GAME CHALLENGE is the starting point

The main purpose of TGC (The Game Challenge) is to create a library of visual content for “The Game”, such as characters, vehicles and environments, which can later be used in real game or for educational purposes. Anyone participating in TGC will also get the chance to win tickets for the IFCC festival and other prizes!

What is THE GAME?

“It’s a totally crazy game where they have mixed all the styles and where you can be anything you want: a human, a monster, an object or natural occurrence. It’s full of unexpected situations where you can, looking like Donald Duck’s evil twin, fight together with Gandalf against a tribe of plastic chairs. You can even drive a car drunk or even be that car… while being drunk.”

How come you've never heard of it?

In fact this game doesn’t really exist and the quote above is a construct of our imagination. Boonika‘s Marko Prpic Zets started developing “The Game” concept in 2010, at the same time when he founded Boonar Studio. ‘The Game’ should be both a never-ending game project and an educational platform that gathers professionals and enthusiasts from the fields of art, entertainment industry. “The Game” project will merge some of the popular genres, visually and conceptually. Before it becomes the real game, if it ever does, first it will be a big online/onsite workshop – The Game Workshop. By working on “The Game” many experts (concept artists, designers, game developers, programmers, script writers…) will teach others through their created content. It doesn’t matter if you’re fan of a certain visual style because we welcome almost anything. Photorealism, cel-shaded, exaggerated, abstract. Really, anything goes. This makes no sense? Wrong, in this game everything makes sense. Especially nonsense. Is it even possible to create such game? Well… it would be a challenge.

YOUR WORK IS YOUR WORK

It is important to emphasize that no matter how this project develops in the future, all the works you submit for TGC (The Game Challenge) will stay yours. We may use creations you submit to promote “The Game” related activities, but always with your name next to it. If one day “The Game” becomes a real game, which we are hoping for, you will decide if you want to see your designs as part of that game. If that happens, don’t worry, it will be clearly visible what was your contribution to the project because we respect your work. Also, if your work ends up as one of the items inside “The Game” library you can still ask for its removal because it’s yours and you have the right to use it as you see fit. If the actual game ever gets made it would probably become an open project. This scenario may include game items for sale, which is how contributors would get payed for their work. All this is pretty unlikely to happen any time soon. We just wanted you to know that there aren’t any hidden plans for your designs. Most of us developing the concept are artists, just like you.
