GCG Game Design Challenge: 'Rename Katamari Damacy'

GCG Game Design Challenge: 'Rename Katamari Damacy'

June 4, 2008 | By Jill Duffy




GameCareerGuide.com, Gamasutra’s sister web site for aspiring game developers, has a weekly Game Design Challenge, a series of creative exercises in becoming a game developer. This week’s challenge asks the industry hopefuls to try thinking partly like a designer, partly like a localization staff member, and partly like a business and marketing person.

The task is to rename Katamari Damacy with a new English title and explain why the title should be used in the West.

Anyone is welcome to participate, and professional developers are encouraged to provide feedback and guidance to the GameCareerGuide.com community via its forum.

To suggest your own solutions, read the complete assignment on GameCareerGuide.com. Then send your answers to [email protected] with the subject line "Design Challenge: Rename Katamari." Entries must be submitted by Wednesday, June 11, 2008. Be sure to include your full name and school affiliation or job title.
