uDevGame Contest Announced
8:18 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

iDevGames, the premier site for anything related to programming games on the Mac, has started a new contest known as uDevGame. The contest is designed to help both promote making Mac games as well as increase the open-source code base available for beginning Mac programmers to use and learn from. Developers have until September 16 to submit an original work that runs on any Mac platform (Classic or OS X) as well as its source code. Winners will have their pick from $3700 in prizes from various companies. Here's an excerpt from the contest rules page with more details:


We hope that uDevGame will stimulate the creation of games on the Macintosh by encouraging people to develop new and original games for the platform.


The need for qualified Macintosh programmers is greater now than ever thanks to Apple's exciting new operating system, Mac OS X. Participants in the uDevGame contest will actively help in the education of the Macintosh developers, as well as encourage and enhance the interest of those new to the platform.


iDevGames hopes this contest will draw attention to those that develop unique and exciting games for the Macintosh, as well as help introduce the best and brightest Macintosh game development talent to development houses and publishers alike.
This is a very interesting concept, and we can't wait to see what might come of uDevGame. This should be great inspiration for would-be programmers to start cranking on their first projects, and it might even mean more great Mac-first titles will be available to play in the future.
