iDevGames today announced the official opening of uDevGame 2002, the second annual Macintosh game creation competition. To enter the contest, you need to write a game that runs natively on an Apple Macintosh computer. Contestants can win prizes from a prize pool that retails at over $9,000.
"Last year's contest was a huge milestone in the history of Macintosh gaming as well as iDevGames. The contest garnered widespread interest amoung developers and gamers alike. With this year's contest on track to becoming a bigger and better event, it is very exciting to see uDevGame become an annual institution on the Macintosh platform", were the words of Carlos Camacho, iDevGames' Editor-in-Chief. Last year's contest contributed more than 20 new games with source code (available from iDevGames.com) to the game development industry, and received great interest from the game development industry. Some of the winning entries from uDevGame 2001 were even published in the recently released book Mac Game Programming by Mark Szymczyk.More information about the competition and how to enter can be found at uDevGame 2002's official home page.
Any game genre is welcomed and entries are permissible from anywhere in the world. The competition closes on November 17, 2002 and winners will be announced on December 2, 2002. "The best part about participating in uDevGame is not the prizes, but the possibility that your entry might end up on the cover CD of a book or a magazine. Having some sort of publishing history is vital if you want to enter the Game development business", said Sacha Saxer, third place winner of last year's contest.
