Off The Map
GameCity is very excited to be hosting the most creative and inspiring competition ever to involve a cultural heritage collection and gaming, in conjunction with the British Library.
Now in its fourth year, Off The Map challenges budding game makers to use collections from The British Library as inspiration to create exciting interactive digital media.
The 2016 Off The Map competition was launched at the tenth GameCity Festival and is associated with the British Library’s upcoming Shakespeare exhibition (15 April 2016 to 6 September 2016). A variety of illustrations, engravings, maps and sounds related to The Tempest and castles and forests that have been used as settings in Shakespeare’s plays will provide the basis for students to base their games on.
There are three categories for entry; 3D, 2D and Interactive Text.
Winners will be announced at the GameCity festival in October 2016.
