uDevGame Contest Entries Arrive, Voting Begins
2:53 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
As any recent visitor to MacGameFiles is sure to notice, a flood of entries to the uDevGame 2001 programming contest have arrived. As the deadline was over the weekend, all entries should be in and the actual voting is taking place right now. With 24 entries (many of them OS X only) this contest has to be considered an unprecedented success, and we predict many of you will be surprised at the quality and ambition of some of the entries.
Some of our favorites include Zed Nought, which uses Quartz (the native 2D drawing language of OS X) to produce some great anti-aliased visuals, Turtle Turmoil (a very polished action/puzzle game) and Silly Balls, which makes us nostalgic for Oxyd. But don't let that bias you -- be sure and grab all of the entries and try them yourself before casting your vote.
You can grab all of the entries from the contest page, or go to MacGameFiles and grab anything that is noted as being part of the uDevGames contest. Remember, don't just judge these creations as a complete game, as many of them are not; rather, judge them on the ambition and skill of the programmer and how useful the game would be as a code platform for building future games.
