Mac game development resource center iDevGames has
invited all members of the Macintosh gaming community to participate in the public voting for their annual game development contest uDevGame.
This year, a total of forty seperate entries fight for your vote and over $15,000 in prizes. Programmers have had three months to put together their official entries, and the resulting games cover the whole gamut of game types.
The forty one games are now subject to a nine day voting period, ending November 26. Voters will judge the games on the following criteria: Gameplay, Originality, Graphics, Sound & Music, and the appropriately-named category "Polish". Once voting is complete, the results will be tabulated, and the winners announced on December 2nd, 2002.
uDevGame was designed to promote game programming skills within the Mac gaming community while raising the profile of Mac gaming:
The goal is to motivate developers to create original games for the Macintosh platform, and then to release the source code back to the Macintosh programming community. In this way, the participants of uDevGame actively help to educate developers (and aspiring developers) in technologies such as OpenGL and Cocoa. In addition, the contest helps to 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.Stay tuned to IMG as news of the contest progresses.
