Join the 3rd Global Game Art Contest Unknown World!
Registration for the 3rd edition of the Global Game Art Contest (GGAC), one of the largest professional game art events worldwide, has now begun! This edition of GGAC 2020 has been comprehensively upgraded – more categories, more prizes and bigger bonus!
This year’s theme is an exploration project where unknown lifeforms have been discovered. Some of them hide in the wild, some are disguised amongst us, and some are even cosmic (or mystical) beings. Are they our friends…or enemies? The GGAC Exploration Station recruits GGAC explorers (artists) worldwide to use images, videos and texts to record what they have discovered and upload to GGAC.NET.
