Ever wanted to design your own game, but aren't sure where to begin? Feel that this game could be the next big hit? Do you live somewhere in Canada? If you've answered yes to the following questions then one Canadian developer may just have a deal for you.

Big Blue Bubble, a Canadian video games developer is offering a unique proposition for gamers - the chance to get their idea developed into a full-fledged title. Not only that, the person who wins the competition will keep the rights to the product once it's completed!

The initiative is part of this year's Digital Interactive London (DIG) conference, which Big Blue Bubble are a staunch supporter of. In the past, Big Blue Bubble have worked on a range of titles, including Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain on Nintendo DS.

To take part in the competition, you MUST be a Canadian resident who is over 16 years of age and you need to submit a concept for the game which has a maximum of 500 words. You're also able to submit two files to accompany this, be it an audio file or an image. The goal is to make a game for either smart phones, PC or Mac, with a short development cycle.

It's a completely unique situation in the world of video games, and there's no reason why people shouldn't be clamouring to take part! To find out more, visit the DIG London 2011 website.
