uDevGame Entries Released
1:23 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
The fruits of the uDevGames contest held by Mac-centric development site iDevGames are already ripe to be picked; two titles have been released so far, with more due in the future. As they count down to the September 16th deadline, over 16 entries are expected, each a sample piece of code or complete game that demonstrates original Mac development.
After all the games are released, the voting will begin; so far five titles have been released in final or preliminary form. It is hoped the short window of time for development will both inspire and pressure Mac programmers to surpass expectations as to what is possible on the Mac platform -- or on Mac OS X, as this is the route many of the developers have taken.
The latest two entries are Skimmer 1.0, a 3D realtime beat-the-clock game, and Covalence Solitaire, which despite the name is not a card game but a puzzle based on atomic bonds. Both can be downloaded at MacGameFiles.
Skimmer 1.0 (384k)
