Google Play has recently announced a game changing option!
Well, it is quite literally on how to change games or rather how you can make your own games. And here is everything you have to know about it.
What is this Change The Game?
The Change the Game Design Challenge is an initiative to inspire teens; in order to build a more inclusive future for mobile gaming. This year, Google has asked teens to share their mobile game idea for a chance to win a $15,000 college scholarship; $15,000 tech donation to their school and/or community center and other amazing prizes.
Basically, they chose five finalists who could bring their unique voices to the gaming world. This initiative is being partnered with Girls Make Games to produce, develop and launch their game designs on Google Play.

The Grand Prize Winner will win a $15,000 college scholarship and $15,000 for their school or community center’s technology program.
The top five finalists will serve as the creative directors for their game, teaming up with Girls Make Games and game industry veterans to develop and launch their game on Google Play. They’ll also receive an all-expenses paid trip to Los Angeles to showcase their game design and meet the mentors who will be helping to build their game. The finalists will join a celebration of women in gaming, get a VIP tour of Google Los Angeles, a scholarship to attend Girls Make Games Summer Camp and more.
