Kuma Pageworks is proud to announce the Mix-O-Tronic Challenge, a game design workshop and competition dedicated to stretching the boundaries of role-playing game design.

Using the enigmatic Mix-O-Tronic, a random idea generator crafted with the game designer in mind, as its foundation, Challenge participants will work through a wide range of exercises that will stretch the imagination and tempt the curious.  The Challenge will culminate with the Grand Challenge, a judged competition with (currently) over $100 in prizes and the chance to work with published game designers to create a game for the commercial market.

The overall aim of the Challenge is to create a community of eclectic innovators from every corner of the gaming world: computer, board, card, RPG and wargame aficionados are encouraged to sign up and work together to look forward to the next generation of games.

The Official Site is open now for registration, with the first exercise beginning on All Saints Day (November 1st).  The starting gun for the Grand Challenge will sound on January 9th.  Between now and then, there will be twice-weekly (or more!) warm-up design puzzles and plenty of strangeness from the Mix-O-Tronic: The Godhead of Game Ideas.

Kuma Pageworks is also soliciting swag and the input of established designers.  In exchange for the donation of a single copy of your game to add to the prize pool or the investment of a few hours of your time, you can have a rotating ad on the Official Site with unlimited impressions, along with your sponsorship noted in all future ads and communications.  If you're interested in supporting the Challenge, e-mail Kuma himself at mixotronic@gmail.com.
