What is EG-100?
EG-100 is a 100 educational games challenge. CDAC Mumbai and IEEE Bombay section have joined hands to facilitate this. It is anticipated that through this initiative good quality educational games will be available for free for interested users. All games developed under this will be freely available to the public, with due credit to the developers. The winners will get prizes worth Rs. 30,000/-
Motivation for EG-100
Games is now being perceived as an effective medium for learning/education, with many advantages. However, building good games which are tempting to play requires software development, creativity and user experience design. Making them educational is a further challenge. We want to encourage our students pursuing degree programs involving software development, to consider building such games as a side project or even your main project.
This EG-100 movement will provide you the guidance and framework required for this. We also will provide a channel to share your games with the intended end-users.
