Phase Shift Games is sponsoring a design contest explicitly crafted to push game designers’ thinking and creativity to a new level. We want designers to consider new ideas that directly push one or more dimensional envelopes. Here are some rough questions and ideas to get your neurons firing:

Contest judges will include the two owners of Phase Shift Games, as well as other fine folks from partner organizations. A winning entry could be as simple as one with very few or tiny components, or it could be a huge game with 3D platforms and countless other components. What matters most to us is strong representation of pushing a dimensional envelope, and each submitter will be asked to explicitly state how their submission(s) achieves this goal.

To qualify, your game must comply with all of the following rules:


You retain all rights to your game and are welcome to sell it in our shop during and after the contest, regardless of the outcome of the contest.

The first round of judging is handled by a community voting process. The final two rounds are handled by the judge. See complete details.


The winner shall receive all of the following prizes:

Second place shall receive $100 in cash paid by Phase Shift Games.

Third place shall receive $50 in cash paid by Phase Shift Games.

Phase Shift Games will consider publishing any number of the winning games, not necessarily in the winning placement order (depending on publishing complexity and other strategic factors). In this case, the cash prize will be applied toward an agreed royalty advance fee.
