Here's a chance for your students (or you!) to design a brand new character for the popular game Chimpact. The winner’s character will feature in the next Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 version of the game and get a credit - but just as importantly, the winner gets bragging rights over all their mates! The winner also gets a trip to the Yippee Studios to see their design turned into a real game character.

This could be a great creative project for education, with exciting results for the winner.

Designing a brand new character for a game like Chimpact is great fun! All you need is your imagination, your tools of choice and a bit of patience – here are just some design ideas before the final version of Chuck was created:

In order to create a unique and entertaining new Chimp for Chimpact, here's a few things to consider:

  • Take a look at the existing characters and think about what makes them different; the new character needs a strong identity of their own.
  • Be creative with the use of shape and colour.
  • Add distinctive personality by using accessories - hats, glasses and other items may all help you character stand out.
  • And don't forget about your chimp's costume!

We're not looking for a perfect, highly finished drawing - we're looking for great ideas that are fun! The competition closes on April 12th 2013

Your entries can be submitted by email in electronic format (JPG, PNG, BMP, PDF or EPS) or on a sheet of paper no larger than A4 and sent by post. Click here for more information.

Good luck and have fun!
