My name is Tom, and I'm helping to get out the word about Doritos' Unlock Xbox 2009. Basically, Doritos is looking for game concepts - you submit a short video pitching your idea for a game, and they pick ten quarter-finalists, then ultimately two designs (one more than the last Unlock Xbox) to develop into XBLA titles set for release next fall. If yours is picked, you help oversee the project, sit in on pitch meetings, meet with designers like Kudo Tsunoda, all sorts of fun stuff like that. Also they're going to let web voters pick one designer to win a consultant position w/ Doritos' game design team for a year and $50,000. Here's the contest site:
I'd certainly enter this, but the timing is all wrong.. don't want to be leading any design team, not when I've got a bigger plan in mind. Lol, Circy, I think the point is to get a better game than that.
