About the Festival
Tehran Game Festival, as in recent years, seeks to gather together the developers’ community and intends to create appropriate conditions in order to hold this important event by emphasizing the strengths. The 6th Tehran Game Festival is scheduled in such a way that all video games developers could gather around in a fair competition and prepare their precious games in order to win the first place.
The main purpose of this festival is not just to choose some video games and to exhibit them as the game of the year in Iran; but in first place, the main objective of such a great festival is the growth and progression of Iranian games on all platforms including smartphones and PCs. It should be considered that there are many creative developers in Iran that could cause a significant progress in our developing video games industry if given a chance.
Believing that it is too difficult to judge work of art and lack of experts in this field could be felt , the authorities will do they best in order to gather the experts and the veterans of game developing for choosing the game of the year. Hence, as in The 5th Tehran Game Festival, the jury consists of the best Iranian and international game developers in order to avoid mistakes in judgment so that all of the games would win the prize they deserve.
The 6th Tehran Game Festival awards are almost same as The 5th. We’ve considered some “operational awards” as spiritual rewards to acknowledge the achievements of hardworking developers. These rewards could be financial support for participating in international festivals or fund allocation for advertisement.
The process of The 6th Tehran Game Festival, similar to all credible international festivals, is standard and professional. The games are supposed to be judged by Iranian and international judges categorized in the main genres. All games are categorized in eight different categories and the best game of each category and The Game of the Year will be chosen by judges’ votes. Fans choice will have a significant impact as well as judges’ choice in The 6th Tehran Game Festival and Fans Choice is an inseparable part of the festival.
Our principal motivation for holding such festivals is growth and progression of Iran’s game industry. These days, many games are created in small and big studios that might never be considered as a special or successful one, but they could be a special achievement and their innovations and new features would help our game industry to make progress. Therefore, the jury might reward some of these games at their discretion.
This section is one of the principal sections existing since The 1st Tehran Game Festival. Game scenario is a story-based section in which people could get familiar with the game scenario writing styles. All developers and writers are eligible take part in this section by submitting their scenario. These scenarios could belong to the games which their development is over or still in progress.
