Well, not really, but someone at GDC thought of a game idea that would win the Peace Prize.
One of the side shows at the Game Developers Conference is the Game Design Challenge, a one-hour long panel where three of the top game designers in the industry offer ideas for games on oddball subjects. This year marked the third installment of the event, with the task of creating a videogame that could win the Nobel Peace Prize.
Harvey Smith, designer of PC games such as System Shock and Deus Ex, won the crowd's approval for best game idea. The game, entitled Peace Bomb!, would require players to suddenly gather up a crowd and do something great for society.
The notable thing about the game concept is that it was specfically designed in mind for the Nintendo DS. In fact, it was the only design of the three entrants that was intended for a specific platform.
While Smith's idea for a Nobel-caliber DS game will never see the light of day, it's still noteworthy to see developers using the handheld as another way to get their ideas out there.
