2008 Life. Love. Game Design Challenge

Can you create a game about teen dating violence, without using violence?

That's the exceedingly intriguing question asked by JenniferAnn.org, the for the 2008 Life. Love. Game Design Challenge.

JenniferAnn.org is a site set up to raise awareness and provide education about violence in teen relationships, established after the murder of Jennifer Crecente by her highschool boyfriend. They have teamed up with the Gawker Media Group and CMP's Simon Carless, to create what would appear to be a very challenging competition.

Unfortunately the compo is limited to entries from the US only, so for readers everywhere else in the world, emmigration is your only option for eligibility. All entries must be in Flash 9, and will be judged in a 60/40 split, for education and entertainment. Our mind boggles at the challenge, creating something entertaining on such a tough subject. The final deadline for entries is April 15th 2008. All the details are here.
