More Reasons to Code!

Barry White of GamesChart recently passed along the press release below.  Being that he is a sponsor of Hackathon's Game Competition I am more than happy to share.  It also appears that you can reuse the same game or at least a variation of it for both competitions... thus more motivation for knocking out a Benevolent game by the 13th!  Good luck to all who enter, looks like there are some nice cash prizes for the winners:


Come2Play and the Linkedin Flash Game Developers Group are launching the 2nd 'Games that Challenge the World Contest' for multiplayer games. Cash prizes totalling $10,000 will be awarded to contest winners!!

1st Place - $5,000
2nd Place - $3,000
3rd Place - $1,250
4th Place - $750

Contest Genre & Judging:
The contest genre is 'Casual Games' and submissions will be judged on the following criteria:

* Multiplayer playability for new and return players
* Replay ability of the game
* Design, sound and effects
* Concept and execution

Developers keep all rights to the games they submit and even previously released games can be entered. 

There was only a handful of entries to last years contest, so the chance of winning a serious cash prize is very high. Check out the winning entries of the 1st 'Games that Challenge the World Contest' here: http://bit.ly/gKLqz6 - If you've got a multiplayer game and you think you stand a chance of winning, why not submit your game now!

I am not sure. I was given the initial press released and asked to put a blurb on my blog, but haven't been kept in the loop since.

Nice work on your game btw. Getting 3D going in Flash can be a chore... especially interactive 3d
