Grasshopper throwing a 'Game Campus Festa' for student Vita games

Grasshopper Manufacture hasn't announced any PlayStation Vita games, but it will gladly help students make their own, in what seems to be an ongoing effort to personally rebuild the entire Japanese game industry. The developer has started a "Game Campus Festa" program, in which it will assist students at eight schools in Japan with the creation of Vita software.

In addition to providing guidance, Grasshopper also said that it will consider publishing some of the resulting games as downloads. We're interested in promoting student work as well, so here's a little advice to those taking part in the program. Put a lot of wrestling references in your game, and put the protagonist in a leather jacket if you want GHM to pick it up.
