People are being encouraged to take part in the Bermuda Island Games’ second annual video game design challenge next month.

Many prizes, including a new PlayStation 5, will be offered for the best new video game concept.

Bermudian Harrison Pink, who has been working on the upcoming role player game Diablo IV, will speak at the event, which will also feature Shamari Mello, who hosted an anime event on the island last month.
