Enormous Games are made daily, but most of those works are individual efforts. Valuable game is also useful for a similar purpose, but there was no opportunity to introduce, appeal, and be authorized by Professionals. ISAGA Simulation Gaming Competition (ISGC) is a great chance to compare your game with other works, share know-how to develop a further own game and obtain constructive advice from ISAGA’s Professionals on the international stage.

The competition connects the participants and reviewers by Zoom. The reviewer’s panel is distinguished game designers famous in ISAGA Community. Participants facilitate their game to the reviewers within two hours.

Reviewers stay physically in the same location. They play the new game through online facilitation by the authors. They discuss game achievement from Simulation, Playability, and Creativity. They grade games, and excellent work is awarded under the name of ISAGA.

The result of Review will soon be noticed to the player group, and they revise the game, and two weeks after, they meet online. Every team makes a presentation and demonstration. While participating in ISGC, they can sense that the global game society member welcomes them and receive precious comments on their works.

To LOCALSAGA directors, please announce this fantastic opportunity to your members, students, and future developers. The translation is welcome.
