uDevGames 2008 Winners Announced
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 5 comments

uDevGames is scheduled today to announce the winners of the uDevGames 2008 contest. The competition challenges developers to create a viable game in three months. The 20 game entries were subject to public and peer voting, which ended on March 12. Entries were scored for “Best Overall Game," as well as in six additional categories: Gameplay, Graphics, Audio, Story, Presentation and Originality. The winners will divide a prize pool of over $20,000 donated by the sponsors of uDevGames 2008.



uDevGames was established by iDevGames with three underlying objectives in mind: create, educate, and succeed. The goal is to motivate developers to create fun games for the Mac platform, and then to release the games under an OSI open source license.

uDevGames actively helps to educate Mac developers, and aspiring new developers to the Mac platform, in technologies such as OpenGL and Objective-C. In addition, the contest helps spotlight developers that create unique and exciting games for the Mac, as well as help introduce the best and brightest talent to game publishers.

“We kicked off uDevGames in 2001, and for the next three years, it made a fantastic impact on the Mac gaming scene. uDevGames has served as a springboard for many of our past developers into the world of professional game development. By leveraging their experience in the contest, whether they win or not, this year’s developers will no doubt contribute positively to the Mac and iPhone platforms,” said Carlos Camacho, Editor-in-Chief, iDevGames.
