GameCareerGuide: Game Design Challenge - Michael Jackson

At E3, Ubisoft announced that it has the rights to do a Michael Jackson game -- and inspired by that info, GameCareerGuide's latest Game Design Challenge asks the site's users to dream up what a new game starring the King of Pop might be.

The challenge:

At this year's E3 show, French publisher Ubisoft announced that it had secured the rights to develop and release a video game based on the legacy of pop star Michael Jackson, who died last year.

About all the company had to say about the game's content is this:

"The game is family entertainment at its best and will provide an interactive experience that enables players to step into the shoes of Michael Jackson himself and re-live his most iconic performances through their own singing and dancing."

At any rate, the singer lived such a flamboyantly creative life -- from music and dance to film and Neverland Ranch -- that there's really no end to the possibilities of the games that could be made based on the star. So why not let your imagination run wild?

The challenge, which can be entered by any reader of Gamasutra or GameCareerGuide, runs until Wednesday, July 7, and the winners will be announced Tuesday, July 13. For the full details on how to enter, check out the challenge post on GameCareerGuide.
