If you are an enrolled college student, 38 Studios (that’s a studio name, not 38 different studios) want you to make a game for them starring their own character, Munch, and his.. uh.. evil twin… evil Munch for their 2nd annual Massachusetts Game Challenge. Why would you want to do that? How about $500 cash? $1,000? 1,500? It’s not the most exciting proposition out there, but the promise of cold hard cash is never a bad motivator.
They are also holding a game jam from tonight until February 8th to kick things off at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, so if you’re a student there or somewhere nearby, this could be good times.
The studio was founded by Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, and is currently working with author R.A. Salvatore and artist Todd McFarlane to develop an MMORPG based on an original fantasy IP codenamed Copernicus (crazy).
