What better way to open up our brand spanking new blog by announcing the start of our Social Game competition?
After sifting through countless applications and months of planning, the Geek Factor competition finally began! Two teams of budding video game designers are now battling it out for the next five weeks for social game supremacy as they build a game for weForest, a non-profit organisation dedicated to reforest 20 million square kilometers of Earth.
