Sid Meier and the 48-Hour Game Contest


Sid Meier, the designer for the Civilization series, recently took part in a 48-hour game-making contest. Motherboard has the video feature. He doesn’t talk much about Civilization or OSG’s, but it’s a really interesting video and sounds like a fun contest.

“The contest, titled ‘7th Annual Wolverine Soft 48 Hour Game Design Contest’, took place at Sid Meier’s alma mater University of Michigan and pits coders and designers against each other in a race to create a game in two days. Sid Meier participated in the contest and made a game called ‘Escape from Zombie Hotel!’. In addition, he judged the games made by the student teams.”
