uDevGame2001 Nearing a Close
9:16 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story
uDevGames 2001 a game development contest organized and hosted by iDevGames is nearing the closing date of September 16th. After this date no more submissions will be accepted, and the public voting begins! This will take place between the 19th and 24th of September, before the official judging panel deliberates and the winners are announced on October 1st.
uDevGames was created to not only bring attention to the Mac game development scene and encourage its growth, but also in the hope that it would be an educational process for all involved. Here's what Carlos Camacho of iDevGames had to say:
Even with talented programmers, creative designers and powerful tools, typical game development times are long. Yet, the uDevGame competition asks that original games be created in a relatively short period. The reason for this is simple: we wish to showcase what can be done on the Macintosh and demonstrate how quickly and simply it can be achieved.There's already 21 entries listed, and all will have their full source-code distributed so the community can learn from the entries in the months to come. If you haven't downloaded some of the submissions, be sure to do so this weekend, then have your say once the voting begins! Many are available for download at MacGameFiles -- which is also a good place to voice any opinions; you never know, the developer may be watching. IMG wishes the best of luck to all developers involved and thanks to Carlos and the rest of those at iDevGames for organizing the contest, which will hopefully flourish in years to come.
