National Challenge

Welcome to the National Challenge!

Running from May 13 - May 27 2024, this is the final event!

Your outstanding performance in the regional challenge has highlighted the immense talent and dedication present among students throughout Canada. We are immensely inspired by the innovative ideas and the engaging games you have all developed.

This is it, the Nationals! Now's your chance to showcase your coding skills and creative brilliance at the pinnacle of the SFU Canadian Coding League.

We were so inspired by the games you've made this year, that we decided we wanted to see more. That is why, the Theme for the National Challenge is:


If you've made it this far, you've already created games and developed content throughout the year for regional and major challenges. Now, you have the opportunity to create a sequel to one of your games. It shouldn't be the same game, but a sequel that builds upon the first. Consider what elements would make a sequel compelling: How can you differentiate it from its predecessor? What improvements could you make? It should be a true sequel, not just a DLC or add-on to your previous games; that is, a true sequel should feel different than what came before, standing on its own as a complete game.

Of course, you don't have to create an actual sequel to your game. It's perfectly fine to design a new game that embodies the theme of a "sequel."

You have two weeks, but early submissions are welcomed. There's no need to use the full 2 weeks, if your vision comes to life sooner!

The best games will be featured LIVE on by FakeUni on June 5 2024, 4pm PST!
