Ravensburger and Gamefound are looking for the next big family game

November 25, 2022 - 2:53am

Publisher Ravensburger in collaboration with crowdfunding platform Gamefound are looking for the next big family game. Literally.

The publisher behind The Castles of Burgundy, Puerto Rico and The Quest for El Dorado is holding a contest for all those wanna-be game designers out there. Starting November 15, the public is encouraged to submit game ideas online. Ravensburger is specifically looking for family games targeting  ages 7 and up, 60 minute playing time max. Promising designs will be asked to send in a prototype, and a jury will pick the best 3 titles. Finalists will run campaigns on GameFound with a €30,000 funding goal, and the campaign with the most backers will receive a retail publishing contract from Ravensburger, with a minimum 10,000 copy print run, and 10% royalty on net sales.

For more details, head to the Ravensburger webpage here. Entries will be accepted online starting November 15, 2022 with a target Gamefound Campaign date of June 2023.
