Video Game Creator Competition

"We must stop the glorification of violence in our society. This includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace. It is too easy today for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. We must stop or substantially reduce this and it has to begin immediately," President Trump said in brief remarks from the White House after massacres in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.


The government has publicly blamed video games as a cause of this horrible tragedy. We need to let people know this is simply not true.


Millions of well-adjusted people -- just like you, and just like us -- play video games, and we're not crazy! It's incredibly unfair to punish the entire population and countless jobs in a thriving industry for the actions of a few, especially without knowing the underlying reasons for their actions.   


Indie Originals wants to show that the president is incorrect. Although video games can be gory with sometimes disturbing content, there is zero scientific research or evidence that shows video games convince a normal person to replicate the actions of its characters. Most video game participants clearly understand the difference between a fantasy world and the real world, and use games as a means of socializing and relaxing. People are well aware these play characters respawn and a new game is always a few clicks away. 


Enter the Indie Originals Video Game Competition, and let us help promote your video game. Several awards are available, and “award-winning” looks great on any packaging. Good luck!
