Quantum mechanics makes some pretty odd predictions about the world − which turn out to be real! On human scales, quantum effects are imperceptibly small, but what if they were amplified? The ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQuS) invites you to develop a quantum-themed computer game, where quantum physics is used to good effect:
The EQuS Quantum Games Competition will accept games that run on common platforms (web, Android, Mac, PC or iOS). Entries must include a short film (up to 5 minutes) showcasing game play to assist in prize judging and promotion.
If you’d like to contact a quantum physicist to help you get your quantum game on, get in touch at email@example.com.
EQuS invites you to develop and submit a new computer game that explores quantum principles to the EQuS Quantum Games competition. Your game needs to run on at least one of the following platforms:
web-based (must run on Chrome and/or Firefox)
app (Apple Store or Google Play)
PC or iOS (Windows 7 and onwards; iOS 10 and onwards)
To enter Quantum Games, upload a video to Youtube, Vimeo or Twitch showcasing game play with a short description (up to 500 words) by noon on January 31 2018. If you are shortlisted, we will ask you to submit a fully playable game by 28 February 2018.
By entering the competition, you warrant that you are in compliance with the competition terms and conditions. Access the full terms and conditions here.
