Hi.  Sounds like an interesting idea.
You do not need to find a mentor.
You just need to prepare a prokect proposal and submit it on the google
GSoC site.   Very good to discuss it here too though!
We match potential mentors to projects as part of the selection process.

Hope that helps.

Hi all,

I had some ideas regarding this project. I am not sure who to and how to
approach for mentorship on this project.

Games based on OSM data
I wanted to work on a game idea that I have thought of which I call
"infectious". It focuses on real time movement of a person in a city. There
are two groups (for eg. disease and cure) and every person belongs to
either group. Whenever two people from different groups come in close
proximity they can convert the other guy into their own group. The person
who converts the most people wins or the whole group could win also. So
essentially the spread happens like a contact based virus would spread in a
community. Singapore is a great place to start this game too, since
Singapore has the highest smartphone density in the world, its small enough
to run country wide campaign in the game and 3G works even in underground
trains, and people usually play these games during daily commutes. I am
really excited to build this game using OSM data. I can build this on
OSMAnd using live tracking and Map viewing features of the app.

I would really like to discuss this further.
