FunPlus x Games for Change collaboration announces a new Character Design Award

Combining students’ passion for video games with civic engagement and digital storytelling!

A new collaboration for the Games for Change Student Challenge, a national game design program and competition in the US that combines students’ love of video games with civic engagement and digital storytelling, was announced today by FunPlus, one of the biggest independent mobile game developers and publishers in the world. A 19-year-old nonprofit organization called Games for Change (“G4C”) equips game designers and inventors to create change in the real world.

FunPlus will empower students through collaboration with Games for Change

The Character Design Award continues FunPlus’ productive partnership with Creative Art Works (“CAW“), a 36-year-old charity that uses the visual and multidisciplinary arts to empower underprivileged youths and young adults in New York City.

A Character Design apprenticeship with CAW has been sponsored by FunPlus since 2020, and the G4C partnership expands on this dedication to support the upcoming generation of artists and possible future video game talent.

We’re excited to keep building on our commitment to younger generations and contributing our own in-house expertise to the Games for Change Student Challenge. Our teams are passionate about investing in the younger generations and this award provides another opportunity for us to make a concrete impact.

Chris Petrovic, Chief Business Officer at FunPlus.

Students will be given the task of creating a video game character as part of the Character Design Award competition with the assistance of G4C and character design professionals from FunPlus. Beginning in early 2023, FunPlus artists and creators from around the world will support educators’ professional growth by judging submitted projects, giving masterclasses to participating students, and conducting masterclasses for educators.
