Clocking in at 1,336 pages, Robert Caro’s The Power Broker is a monumental biography capturing the life and works of Robert Moses (1888–1981), the controversial master urban planner of New York responsible for the construction of many major landmarks including Lincoln Center, the United Nations, and the Triborough Bridge, among many others.
Today, we are launching a competition that challenges game designers to adapt The Power Broker into a playable, interactive form that preserves the flavor and themes of the written work, while leveraging the unique opportunities the game medium provides.
We are seeking submissions both in a video game category, as well in a separate tabletop game category. Prizes and the structure of the competition are described below. To participate, you must register by filling out the form before midnight PST on April 29. After registration, contestants will have three months — from April 29 to July 29 — to fully complete their game designs. Games may either be in video game form, or in the form of a tabletop or real-world game. On July 29, they will submit their game to the Prize Committee.
Awards:- The best game $2000, Runner Up (Video Game) $500, Runner Up (Tabletop) $500
