The International Games Concept Challenge (GCC) 2018 is an international competition focusing on game concept involving partners of educational institutions from around the world.
IGCC enables RMIT Melbourne postgraduate students in the Master of Animation, Games & Interactivity (MAGI) to work in an intensive ‘game-jam’ with students from Japan (Trident Institute of Information Technology Nagoya), Singapore (Nanyang Polytechnic), France (Supinfogame), Finland (Kajaani University of Applied Sciences) and South Korea (Hoseo University).

RMIT students will be spread across diverse teams to work with an industry client, experience collective cross-cultural creativity, and conceptualise-develop game concepts through learning experiences such as dissecting the industry client’s game design brief, peer input, academic mentors, industry insights, prototype development, ideas pitching, judges’ feedback and possibly commercialising games concepts. RMIT students do not work as an RMIT team but are spread across groups of nationalities and experience who have diverse skill sets in game art, game design, game programming as well as teamwork and intercultural competencies.
