7:52 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Over The Edge, the makers of the game development utility Unity, announced yesterday the Unity Dashboard Widget Challenge for widgets made with the Unity software. The contest will run for 14 days with the deadline for submissions August 22.

A variety of prizes are up for grabs:

Grand Prix Of The Jury
This prize is awarded for the most dazzling, fun, cool and/or useful Widget in the competition. All submitted Widgets will be considered for this category.  

The prize is a license of Unity Pro and an ATI Radeon X800 XT Mac Edition, the best graphics accelerator money can buy.  

The People's Love Ballot
Simply: The love of the people decides. This prize is awarded to the most popular Widget measured by number of votes. The most promising Widgets will be picked out and put up for a vote.

The prize is a license of Unity Indie and an ATI Radeon X800 XT Mac Edition: the best graphics accelerator money can buy.  

The Project Files Of Deep Wisdom
This prize is awarded to the Widget whose project files display the best structure and best written scripts for others to learn from. To participate in this category it is necessary to open-source the project folder of the Widget as outlined in the rules.  

The prize is a license of Unity Indie. In addition, the best 5 entrants in this category get a copy of our rolling-and-jumping action-packed game GooBall, generously co-sponsored by Ambrosia Software and ourselves :)

Everyone's A Winner
In addition, all participants whose Widgets are accepted as competition entries will get a 15% rebate coupon good for one purchase of Unity licenses.

Second Best Good Too
The runner-up in each category gets an InsideMacGames Pro subscription which includes a customizable view of IMG, a blog-space on the premier Mac gaming site, special offers on Mac games, and more.

Unity is an OS X exclusive utility intended to provide an easy to use environment for the creation of Mac games and OS X Tiger dashboard Widgets. It is the platform used in the creation of Ambrosa's Gooball. For the complete rules of the competition check out the link below.
