After opening the flag ship location in Dallas, Dave & Buster’s has been nothing but a hit. It’s always packed with people having a good time, enjoying drinks and bringing out their inner child by playing games from years and year ago. Not only is it fun to play old school games but I enjoy playing the newer games that were made from phone apps such as Doodle Jump and Fruit Ninja. Pure genius.
Do you have an awesome idea for a game? Dave & Buster’s wants you to share your thoughts and get a chance to win Game for LIFE at Dave & Buster’s. I would be in heaven if I won. “Dave & Buster’s guests have never been shy about sharing their opinions, but they’ve never had an opportunity to get involved with the actual design of our games. Until now,” Kevin Bachus, senior vice president of Entertainment explained. “You don’t need to be a famous game designer with decades of computer programming skills and a multi-million dollar development budget. You just need that one awesome idea.”
The game is judged on multiple components:
- Originality – Is your game unlike anything Dave & Buster’s has ever seen?
- Ease of Play – Is your game easy for players to understand?
- Family Fun – Is your game suitable for all ages?
- Game Play Experience – Is your game fun to play?
- Difficulty – Does your game require skill to win?
Even if you don’t win FIRST place, there is still chance to win awesome prizes for the runner up and 3rd place winner. Second place gets $5,000 in game play at Dave & Buster’s and Third Place gets $500 in game place at Dave & Buster’s. It’s totally worth submitting your idea for all that free game play.
The contest will run til July 15, and is open to residents of the continental United States. The winner will not only have the opportunity to have their winning game designed as a mobile app or featured as an arcade attraction in Dave & Buster’s nation-wide, but may also win free games for life. Not only would you get free games, but think about the bragging rights!
