uDevGame 2003 Progress Update
10:46 AM | Matt Diamond | Comment on this story
After their server was compromised by a hacker earlier this month, the uDevGame 2003 contest has been on hold while Carlos Camacho, the contest organizer, scrambles to bring a new, secure server online. IMG managed to get a moment of Carlos's time for a progress update.
Carlos had the following message for Mac gamers: "iDG is committed to gaming on the Mac, and to getting the contest back up (we will extend [the voting period] as much as needed to make up for lost time.)"
Carlos adds, "We could use the support of the gaming community in terms of patience and donations to help offset upgrade and server management fees."
uDevGame has a temporary website up where gamers can download most of the contest entries and read about the progress being made to restart the contest. Anyone feeling kindly to the man who spends untold hours and his own hard-earned cash to run this contest can make a donation using links that are also on the temporary web-page.
While we wait for voting to resume, IMG encourages everyone to use the extra time to try out more of the games and be prepared to rate them once the server comes back. uDevGame is a contest for Mac game developers to develop a free game in a short amount of time. Source code for all games will be made available in order to encourage future Mac game development.
