Square Enix Collective’s Launch, Criteria Clarification

Comments Off on Square Enix Collective’s Launch, Criteria Clarification 57

Yesterday saw Square Enix Collective open up for developer submissions. Attached to this announcement was a list of submission criteria, one of which made me wonder about the direction Collective was going in.

When I first glanced over the announcement, I was shocked by the words ‘industry professional’. To me, this means someone who has already shipped a couple of titles as part of a bigger studio before moving on to create their own. I am glad I contacted Phil Elliot, Project Lead of Collective, because he cleared it up for me:

“The most important part is that the person knows how to code and can make the game, so has the expertise necessary – either individually or as part of a team. For example, somebody just graduating from a computer science course could submit an idea.”

Even after talking to Elliot, the wording still suggests someone who has worked in the industry before. I hope that anyone who has been put off from submitting their idea will soon be alerted to this fact and put forward their pitch to the Square Enix Collective.
