The GDC Game Design Challenge is very interesting, the event gives designers the opportunity to display their amazing creativity.

When I searched for the old events I could only find articles which featured one or two games, never the whole list. Is there a record of all the games that have been designed for this event throughout the last ten years?

  • \$\begingroup\$ GameCareerGuide also had (has?) a very nice game design challenge series going on. Here's their list: gamecareerguide.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1543 \$\endgroup\$

I've compiled the following list of all the Game Design Challenges (and there will be no more as 2013 was the last) along with their subtitle (I've had to guess a few). They all have links to articles or videos that contain info about all the entries and say which one won.

I haven't read through all of these (and I didn't watch the conference video) but all the information about the entries should be there, otherwise googling the subtitle of an event may divulge more details. I've listed the actual entries for each year and emboldened the winner, I managed to find titles for most of the entries but a few were not mentioned.
