iDevGames, the leading website for Macintosh game development, today announced the launch of uDevGame 2003, the 3rd annual Macintosh game development contest. The uDevGame Contest gives programmers, designers, artists, and musicians the chance to both improve the state of gaming on the Macintosh platform, and to contribute to the independent development community. More than $16,000 of prizes are offered as incentives this year!
Here's more from the official PR:
"iDevGames has received an immense amount of support in our efforts to make a difference at the grassroots level through the uDevGame Contest, and we are dedicated to highlighting the tremendous talent of independent game developers," said Carlos Camacho, Editor-in-Chief of iDevGames. "The uDevGame Contest provides developers with a unique opportunity to utilize their skills as well as improve Mac gaming."Entries are limited to one per person or team, and must run natively in Mac OS X. Entries may be created with any Mac OS tool, but must be less than 10MB when compressed. The source code, or source files, for all entries must be submitted to iDevGames. The uDevGame Contest is open to all developers in any country.
iDevGames established the uDevGame Contest in 2001 to energize game development on the Apple Macintosh platform, encourage innovation in Mac games, and to garner recognition for the best Mac independent game developers. The uDevGame 2003 Contest is based on three fundemental principles: Creation of original Macintosh games, Education of the Macintosh development community, and Success of talented Macintosh programmers, artists, musicians, and designers.
The contest challenges entrants to create an original Mac OS X game in only three months. The games are then subjected to a period of public voting and rated in five categories: Game Play, Originality, Polish, Graphics, and Sound & Music. Prizes are awarded to the developers of the top three ranking games in each category, as well as the top three Best Overall Games. A complete list of prizes with descriptions can be found at: http://www.idevgames.com/content/contest.php?id=10&prizes=1
"uDevGame is the best thing to happen to Mac game development in a very long time," said Colin Lynch Smith, Vice President of Freeverse Software, "The encouragement and resources it provides to independent developers make titles like Rocco Bowling's 'Solace' possible. Freeverse is proud to be publishing such a terrific Mac-developed game."
